    VP Leni brings aid to survivors, families of Iloilo-Guimaras sea mishap victims

    Vice President Leni Robredo on Monday personally condoled with the survivors and families of those who died in multiple boat accidents in the Iloilo-Guimaras strait last week.

    During the visit, VP Leni’s office extended financial assistance to four survivors and five families who lost their loved ones in Iloilo. The same was given to 52 survivors and 10 mourning families at her stop in Guimaras.

    In Iloilo, Robredo went to Brgy. De Leon in Mandurriao district to personally convey her sympathy to the family of 54-year-old Adora Java, who died in the incident together with three of her grandchildren: Jhaeron Mars Salanatin, Jen Lloyd Salanatin, and Jhairus James Alejano—aged 13, nine, and two, respectively.

    Robredo was also able to meet some of the survivors and the families of other victims when she visited the town of Jordan in Guimaras. Here, she also joined a Mass and ceremonial flower-laying, held in honor of those who were killed in the accident.

    VP Leni—who lost her husband, Interior Sec. Jesse Robredo to a plane crash in 2012—underscored the importance of assisting the families amid their grief, with the coming days expected to be more difficult for them.

    “Ito [ay] pakikiisa [sa kanila], kasi talagang napakasaklap ng aksidente na pinagdaanan. So gusto lang natin iparamdam na marami naman tayong hindi lang nakikidalamhati, pero handang tumulong. Kasi alam ko iyong pakiramdam, eh—na pagkatapos ng libing, mas mahirap iyong haharapin nila,” she said.

    Having listened to the concerns of both survivors and families, VP Leni also underscored that her office is committed to exploring other ways to help them, which includes psychosocial services and aid in processing the necessary paperwork.
