    OVP assists soldiers injured in vehicular accident while securing VP Leni in Basilan

    OVP assists soldiers injured in vehicular accident while securing VP Leni in Basilan

    Vice President Leni Robredo has directed her office to extend help to the 13 members of the Army’s 17th Scout Ranger Company who were injured in a vehicular accident while providing her security in Basilan on Wednesday, January 26.

    “We are in constant communication with the mother unit of the injured troops, and we are coordinating for any additional support and assistance that the soldiers may still need,” said Atty. Barry Gutierrez, Robredo’s spokesperson.

    Gutierrez said that on Wednesday night, Robredo was informed that the Scout Rangers were involved in a vehicular accident and sustained multiple injuries.

    “The Vice President immediately asked her ground team to monitor the condition of the soldiers. She is, of course, concerned because she knows the soldiers’ dedication and the sacrifices they make in carrying out their duties,” Gutierrez added.

    Robredo visited Barangay Buahan, a Yakan weaving community in Lamitan City, where she led the inauguration of the Angat Buhay Weaving Center. The event was attended by the Yakan weavers and local government officials. The center was built for the Yakan weavers who used to weave in open spaces, enduring the heat.

    The 17th Scout Ranger Company was part of the area security component for the Vice President’s visit to Basilan.

    For the past three days, Robredo was in Basilan, Sulu, Tawi-Tawi, and the Zamboanga Peninsula to visit and turnover the OVP’s Angat Buhay projects. She also turned over COVID-19 antigen test kits and COVID care packages to local governments and units of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP). [End]
