Angat Buhay chairman Leni Robredo praises Erwin Tulfo for his quick response in a crisis situation such as the earthquake, on July 27.

LENI ROBREDO – Former vice president Leni Robredo thanks DSWD Sec. Erwin Tulfo “for the quick response” in times of calamity.

An earthquake with a 7.3 magnitude earthquake in Abra shocked the country. This strong intensity was felt in some other parts of Luzon. This disaster left miserable damages to the affected places most especially in Abra, the epicenter.

Historical churches and buildings were destroyed and many roads were left closed due to broken pavement caused by the strong shaking and the aftermath of the landslides due to the quake.

“It was very strong, it was stronger than usual” says President Bongbong Marcos when he spoke to the reporters some time after this unfortunate event occurred. According to him, impacts were also felt in Malacanang because the chandeliers rattled. It was an indication to him that the shaking is strong.

Also, he chose to step back for now and chose not to travel to the affected areas because he doesn’t want to disrupt the actions taken by the local government. But once he gets a clear signal from them, he assured the people that he will immediately fly there.

Moreover, this situation for him cannot be considered to declare a state of national calamity.

But one public official was able to reach the area, Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Secretary Erwin Tulfo went to Abra Province and did a survey. This has come to the attention of the former vice president and Angat Buhat Chairman Leni Robredo.

“Thank you to DSWD Sec Erwin Tulfo for the quick response. This sense of urgency is very important in crisis situations. Not only does it ensure that govt resources will be readily available but will also assure those affected that they will be cared for,” says Robredo as she expressed her thanks to the official.

Such action is accordingly comforting to the affected people because it shows that they are cared for.

Meanwhile, shortly after the quake struck, Robredo tweeted her concern to our “kababayans” in the north. She was also reassuring saying that they have been in close contact with their volunteer groups there already.
