Amid the difficulties brought by Tisoy’s onslaught, the Vice President assured her fellow Bicolanos of her continued support as they rise from this calamity.

“Gusto ko po talagang personal na makapunta dito para maiparating sa inyo ang mensahe na sa oras ng kagipitan, kami po ay nakikiisa sa inyo. Mahirap man ang ating pinagdaraanan, basta tayo ay nagkakaisa, basta tayo ay nagtutulungan, walang imposible,” she told the residents in Bikol.

VP Leni also said her office will be assisting the province of Masbate and other areas battered by Typhoon Tisoy.
