Robredo said the donations also had messages of support for her and her team for their efforts for those affected by Typhoon Ulysses.

She wrote, “After I was insulted and lambasted on national TV, our partners’ donation drive ballooned to P50M today. It is also the same with the in-kind donations we have been receiving at the office.”

“Most of the messages accompanying the donations are to the effect that they wanted to help the typhoon victims and it is their way of showing their appreciation for the kind of work that our office has been doing for our kababayans,” she added.
