MANILA, Philippines — Vice President Leni Robredo urged the public to pray for citizens of Marawi and Muslim refugees who were displaced from their families as the country commemorates Ed’l Adha or the Feast of Sacrifice on Sunday.

“Sa araw na ito, sana ay alalahanin din natin ang mga kapatid nating nagsasakripisyo at nagsusumikap makabangon, tulad ng mga kababayan natin sa Marawi at mga kapatid nating Muslim refugees na nawalay sa kanilang mga pamilya at naghahangad ng mas magandang bukas,” Robredo said in a statement sent to reporters.

“Yakapin natin sila at patuloy na ipanalangin sa kanilang pagharap sa mga hamon ng buhay,” she added.

Eid’l Adha is an Islamic holiday to remember the willingness of Ibrahim (also known as Abraham) to follow Allah’s command to sacrifice his son.

Robredo also called for the unity of Filipinos despite differences in religion.

“Isa rin itong pambihirang pagkakataon upang mas pagtibayin ang ating nagkakaisang lahi: isang bayang walang iniiwan at tinatalikuran, anuman ang relihiyon, kulay ng balat, o lugar na pinagmulan,” the Vice President said. /je
