The aspiring president stressed that she doesn’t have any “personal relationships” with the donors, noting that there are “no commitments” because these are independent activities of the volunteers. She said they also needed the quota as many OVP staffers also contracted the disease and, therefore, we’re unable to help respond to telemedicine queries. “Alam naman natin ang public transport matagal na natin itong problema [We know that public transport is a long-standing problem in our country]. Volunteer group Team Leni Robredo launched a crowdsourcing page shortly after the Vice President announced her presidential run last October. The page has a disclosure section about the donors’ citizenship. According to Robredo, OVP has a budget designed to respond to the pandemic, so they’re putting more resources into the health crisis. It also said that the funds will not be remitted to the Office of the Vice President (OVP) or to Robredo herself. So we must build with a mindset of moving people, rather than just cars,” she added. “So, none of that amount ni-receive namin (we received none of the amount),” she stressed. Since the pandemic last year, she said they made sure our budget, the OVP’s budget, was already a COVID-19 budget, which meant all non-essential, non-COVID items would have been put on hold, ensuring our budget is responsive to the crisis we’re experiencing.” “We will have to address challenges always with courage and honor and we should be unrestrained by fear and be free from the influence of any political power,” she said.

These funds are being used for volunteer-initiated activities, the lady official added. Receiving campaign funds from businessmen and politicians is one of the long-running issues in the Philippine elections landscape as winning candidates are percevied to be indebted to these donors once they come to power. So because we have a network of volunteers, we have a network of partners already, it was really easy for us to you know, ask help from people who can give help,” she added. She also highlighted the need to invest in digital infrastructure, especially in the countryside. Meanwhile, Robredo also lamented that Filipinos never seem to learn from “mistakes in the past.” This, as well as the Filipinos values system, should be addressed in the country’s educational system. I agree to the. “Maraming mga leksyon na nabigay sa atin sa mga pagkakamali natin sa nakaraan pero paulit-ulit natin itong ginagawa at parang hindi tayo natuto (There are a lot of lessons that we have been given based on the mistakes we did in the past but we keep on doing this and it’s like we do not learn),” she said.” “A cycle of devastation and reconstruction that has stunted our economic momentum for so long,” she said.

“Iyong (The) prognosis nito kailangan talagang ma-embed na siya sa ating (here is it needs to be embedded in our) educational system para bata pa lang naiintindihan niya na kung ano iyon ang mali at tama (so that the children will understand what’s wrong and right while they are young),” Robredo added. .
