#FerryGodmother na rin! After launching free shuttle service, dormitories for frontliners, Robredo’s office provide ferry for Cebuanos

Responding to the request of Cebuanos, Vice President Leni Robredo’s office provided free ferry service for health workers, frontliners and patients in Cebu as the province continues to grapple with the rising number of COVID-19 infection.

Robredo’s office launched the ferry service three days after its free shuttle service started operating in Metro Cebu on Monday (July 6), providing transportation for health workers and frontliners amid the implementation of Enhanced Community Quarantine in the area.

The ferry service will bring passengers from Olango Island, also in Cebu, to the mainland in Lapu-Lapu City, and vice versa.

This initiative came after netizens commenting on Robredo’s Facebook page requested for a ferry service from Olango Island to bring health workers and patients to the mainland, where COVID-19 referral hospitals and centers in Cebu are located.

Robredo personally replied to the request posted in the comments and assured them that a ferry service for Olango Island are already underway.

Two days after, the OVP announced its schedule for the free ferry service.

Aside from providing free shuttle and ferry services, Robredo’s office, with the help of its partners, also opened dormitories for health workers and frontliners in Cebu.
