    VP Leni presses anew for speedy, inclusive rehabilitation of Marawi

    VP Leni presses anew for speedy, inclusive rehabilitation of Marawi
    Robredo asks why donations remain untouched despite thousands of displaced residents in need

    MANILA — Vice President Leni Robredo reiterated her call for the administration to work faster in rebuilding Marawi, as millions of donations remain untouched two years after the siege. VP Leni underscored anew the importance of transparency and speed in the rehabilitation work, as fear and speculations are fueled while thousands of residents are kept in the dark over their beloved city’s recovery.

    “[N]apakaraming gustong tumulong, pero sa dami ng gustong tumulong, dapat yata iyong pamahalaan iyong manguna dito,” she said Sunday, on the weekly radio show, BISErbisyong LENI on RMN-DXZL 558. “Lalong ma-inspire iyong mga tao na tumulong kasi nakikita nila kung saan pupunta iyong tulong. Kung tumutulong sila tapos hindi nagagastos iyong tulong, parang nasayang. Nasayang na ang daming nanghihingi ng tulong, nandiyan na iyong tulong, pero bakit hindi naipapamahagi?”

    “Ngayon tinitingnan ko naman iyong mga report ng mga team namin on the ground, iyong provincial government saka iyong city government, marami na din namang tuloy-tuloy na programang ginagawa. Pero iyong pinaka-simbolismo kasi na may nangyayari, iyong Ground Zero. Hanggang wala pang nangyayari sa Ground Zero, parang iyong impresyon wala pang nangyayari talaga,” she added.

    Robredo issued the comment after a Commission on Audit report flagged that the Office of Civil Defense had spent only P10,000 of the P36.9 million of donations for Marawi, which suffered heavily under a months-long firefight.

    The COA also noted that the OCD has released only P40.98 million of P135.39 million of donations that the agency received for the survivors of supertyphoon Yolanda, which wreaked havoc over parts of Visayas in 2013.

    “Siguro kailangang ipahayag kung ano iyong problema,” VP Leni said. “Ano ba iyong nakakabagal ng paggastos ng pera? Kasi nandiyan iyong nangangailangan, nandiyan iyong pera, pero bakit sobrang bagal?”

    Robredo again said that the administration must listen to the voice of the residents who were affected by the siege—a move she has been pushing for over the past couple of years. During her most recent visit to Marawi, where her office launched the Ahon Laylayan Koalisyon launch in April, VP Leni heard the concerns of residents and sectors who are lamenting the slow rehabilitation of their city.

    Under Robredo’s leadership, the Office of the Vice President has been assisting Marawi, with the help of private partners under its Angat Buhay program. Even with limited resources, the office and its partners built the Angat Buhay Village, which provided transition shelter for displaced residents.

    The OVP’s Angat Buhay program is also working on providing livelihood opportunities for those affected by the siege.
