In the first video, Arida urged all to stay strong and added that "The Filipino spirit is waterproof."
"Filipino spirit is stronger than any typhoon! Stay safe everyone! #prayforthePhilippines #forthephilippines," she captioned the first clip.
In the second one, along with her, three other pageant contestants say the words, Pray for the Philippines in their native languages.
"Keep safe Philippines from the people here in Moscow! #prayforthephilippines," she wrote.
