Outgoing Vice President Leni Robredo said Tuesday she would launch her anti-poverty NGO Angat Buhay with a volunteer event on her first day as a private citizen.

The two-day event starts in July 1 in Quezon City, Robredo said, seeking to harness the same spirit of volunteerism that powered her presidential campaign. Those who want to join the event in person can sign up online.

Robredo said she would feature campaign memorabilia and art, which could also be used to rise funds for Angat Buhay. The event will be streamed online.

Robredo said on Sunday that her team was also planning a revolving exhibit which will feature other items that she received during her campaign, such as the indigenous products of the provinces she visited painted in pink.


A museum is being put up where Robredo's campaign memorabilia will be displayed, but this will not be launched alongside the Angat Buhay NGO on July 1 as it is still being organized, she added.

"Napaka-heartbreaking na bitawan, pero tingin namin ito yung best way para nalalagay sa prominent place yung binigay nila sa amin," Robredo said. "Magiging bahagi ito ng kwento saka magiging bahagi ng pondo para sa ating mga kababayan at mapupunta ito sa tama."
