After concluding a fund campaign for assisting those adversely affected by the quarantine measures imposed during the national health emergency, Vice President Leni Robredo is now conducting relief work.
This week, partners of her Angat Buhay program have been able to provide food packs and hot meals for more health workers in Muntinlupa City and Marikina City.
The package also includes food assistance for non-medical frontliners like security guards, janitors, and other personnel working in hospitals.
“Sa kasalukuyan, nakapag-deliver na ng 12,791 packs sa 80 na mga ospital sa Metro Manila,” Vice President Leni Robredo wrote on her official Facebook page.
(At present, we have delivered 12,791 packs to 80 hospitals in Metro Manila.)
The Vice President also posted the list of hospitals in the two cities that received food assistance for frontliners.
These were Ospital ng Muntinlupa, Asian Hospital and Medical Center, Medical Center Muntinlupa, Inc., Alabang Medical Center, and New Bilibid Prison Hospital, among others.
Almost 25 hospitals and health centers were also given hot meals in Marikina City.
The Office of the Vice President has received at least P122 million worth of assistance for frontliners and communities in need.
Of this amount, P60 million was donated by Filipinos through its fund drive in partnership with Kaya Natin! Movement, an Angat Buhay partner.
Robredo’s office is now going “full force” on the distribution of relief goods after its donation drive ended on April 30.
