Vice President Leni G. Robredo visited 29 victims of the Davao City explosion in a hospital yesterday and offered assistance to the bereaved families.
Robredo took a back and forth flight to Davao City to visit the wounded victims at the Southern Philippines Medical Center.
She also visited the wake of those who died in the explosion, SPO1 Jay Adremesin, at the Angel Funeral Parlor.
The Vice President declined to give a statement about her trip when she made rounds in the hospital and funeral parlor.
Robredo has called for a “calm and collective action” after the explosion Friday that killed 15 persons and injured 71 others.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who lost their lives or were injured in last night’s attack in Davao,” she said.
Robredo condemned the violent attack that she called “senseless and criminal act.”
“Let us all come together in fighting against the scourge of terrorism,” Robredo said.
The Vice President said the people should not to be affected by the “violence and fear” brought by the bombing, which can “divide the nation.” (Raymund F. Antonio)
