Not so long ago, the official FB page of VP Leni Robredo posted photos showing a smiling vice-president wading in almost knee-deep water while a group of people and a white fishing boat can been seen from the background.
As per OVP’s official FB page, the photo was taken during the turnover ceremony of six (6) fishing boats to Mindoro fishermen courtesy of Robredo’s ‘Angat Buhay’ program.
But netizen Hayden Sison stepped forward to debunk the claim of the Office of the Vice President.
Sison said he had a lunch with an alum from a Theresian College in QC.
According to his lunch date, it was their batch who collected P300K from fund-raising activity for a fishing community in Mindoro.
The donate ‘fishing boat’ project was called “Bangka ni Theresa.”
They were in for a big surprise when “thank you” pictures started to surface online wherein Robredo and her ‘Angat Buhay’ program claimed credit for the six (6) boats donated to Mindoro fisherfolks.
Check out Sison’s brief FB post below.
Had lunch with a Theresian.
Taga STC QC.
Nag fundraiser ang batch nila & nakapag raise ng
PHP 300,000 to pay for 6 boats sa isang
fishing community sa Mindoro.
A project is called Bangka ni Theresa.
Walang mention ng Angat Buhay daw.
Nagulat nalang ang Theresian,
lumabas ang thank you pictures,
kasali na si Leni at may tatak “Angat Buhay” na ang bangka.
Be careful where you donate.
