She will drumbeat for international assistance through the Miss Universe Foundation.
Mr. James Morgan of Catholic Organization for Relief and Development Aid “CORDAID” the group that is coordinating Ms Isler’s visit said “This will be a great chance for Coron to be heard with no less than the reigning Miss Universe speaking in behalf of the Coronians,"
Isler's heart was broken a day after she was crowned Miss Universe when the super typhoon hit Philippines. And she can't sit down there doing nothing.
Isler always remembers what her mother told her. "She taught me that life is all about karma. If you give, the more will be given to you. I love to help people and get this chance to be a role model not only for beauty but also for charity," she told reporters in Manila.
Reyes, the lady mayor of the town says Isler's visit means a lot for the rehabilitation efforts of the local government.
"More projects are coming in to the extent that we run out of technical people to do various programs of work. Most of the assistance came from international governments and foreign organizations.
Local foundations and LGUs are also extending assistance through construction and repair of basic facilities such as school, health center, housing, and medicines. With the Miss Universe's visit, we are expecting to hear more good news for Coronians," Reyes says.
