MANILA, Philippines — The non-government organization established by former vice president Leni Robredo will relaunch Bayanihan E-Konsulta, the free online medical consultation program that she initiated during her term.

Robredo said the Angat Buhay NGO will reopen the initiative given the increasing number of new COVID-19 cases.

She said the program requires an initial 50 non-medical and 40 medical volunteers, with the possibility of scaling up depending on the number of requests.

Within 20 minutes, Robredo said more than 1,100 volunteers have already signed up.

“The spirit of volunteerism is alive and well,” she said in a Twitter post.

Robredo launched Angat Buhay on July 1, a day after the end of her term, with the objective of continuing the programs she initiated as vice president.

Bayanihan E-Konsulta was among the programs launched by the Office of the Vice President under Robredo to respond to the pandemic.
