TARLAC CITY — Presidential aspirant and Vice President Leni Robredo on Wednesday (Nov. 3) visited the Aeta communities in Capas town where the OVP vaccine express was held.
Around 500 Aetas from Barangay Sta. Juliana, who received the vaccines were also given free medical check-ups, relief packs and hygiene kits.
Robredo said she asked Capas Mayor Reynaldo Catacutan to let her stay in Capas in the morning before going to this city to thank her supporters who waited for her in Kaisa Hall and Bulwagang Kanlahi.
In her speech at the Cervantes building at F. Tanedo Street in Tarlac City, Robredo thanked the building owner, where her caravan last Oct. 23 was greeted with pink confetti.
“Natouch po ako nung makita ko po ‘yon” Robredo said.
She added: “Alam ko po na nararamdan ninyo na yung 2022 elections is the fight of your life.”
Robredo was joined by Atty. Chell Diokno, who is running for senator, and Sen. Kiko Pangilinan, who is Robredo’s running mate.
The vice president also visited Tarlac Bishop Enrique Macaraeg and some priests in the Diocese of Tarlac at the San Sebastian Cathedral.
