“Napuntahan din ni Leni Robredo ang Dinagat Islands, na isa sa mga probinsyang lubhang apektado ng Bagyong #OdettePH. Patuloy po ang koordinasyon natin sa mga kinauukulan upang mapabilis ang paghatid ng tulong sa mga nangangailangan,” Robredo stated on Facebook.
Leni Robredo is a Filipina lawyer, politician, and social activist who is the current vice president of the Philippines. Robredo is only the second woman to serve as the Philippine vice president after Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. Her husband is the late politician Jesse Robredo, who died in 2012 in a helicopter crash.
Robredo made headlines after announcing that she is running for president in the 2022 Election. Her running mate is Senator Kiko Pangilinan. Many netizens and celebrities expressed their excitement after Robredo made the announcement about her candidacy. In recent surveys for the 2022 presidential race, Robredo is number two behind former senator Bongbong Marcos, who she beat for vice president in the 2016 Election.
In an earlier report by KAMI, Robredo also earned praises after she coordinated with fellow presidential candidate Manny Pacquiao to help the victims of Typhoon Odette. The two politicians were praised by netizens for setting aside their political differences to help people in need. However, Senator Ping Lacson, also a presidential candidate, criticized Pacquiao's gesture, saying that the latter seemed to be using the disaster as part of his campaign.
