The message of Vice President Leni Robredo for Eid’l Fitr 2021

To the entire Muslim community in our country and around the world, I wish you all a joyous Eid.

Today is more than a feast that marks the end of a period of fasting; it is a continued reminder that we are a single community. While the pandemic and its many challenges may prevent us from coming together as we did in the past, today we are reminded that we are a community not just through proximity, but through the numerous acts of solidarity, kindness, justice, and collective resolve that we practice every day.

As you each end your fasts, cherish these bonds and remember that as we maintain our physical distance, the spiritual ties that bind us tighten with every act of communal responsibility. I look forward to the day when we can reclaim our lives fully, and emerge stronger under a better normal for every Filipino. 

May the peace of Allah be with us all. Eid Mubarak!
