Honda Philippines recently gave further support to health workers via vehicle lend-out to numerous hospitals in Laguna and Cavite.
The initiative by Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) was made following the recent re-implementation of the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) in Metro Manila and nearby provinces.
A total of 18 vehicle units composed of the City, Brio, Jazz, Civic, Mobilio, BR-V, HR-V, and CR-V models—along with free gasoline provision good until August 18—were loaned to seven hospitals such as New Sinai MDI Hospital and The Medical City South Luzon in Santa Rosa, Laguna; Unihealth-Southwoods Hospital and Medical Center and Perpetual Help Medical Center in Biñan, Laguna; Global Care Medical Centers in Canlubang and Cabuyao, Laguna; and Carmona Hospital and Medical Center in Carmona, Cavite.
HCPI president Masahiko Nakamura stressed the hardships that the country’s medical workers have been addressing since early this year.
“As tighter quarantine measures have been implemented once again to help control the increasing COVID-19 cases in Mega Manila, Honda would like to support the hardworking medical frontliners battling the pandemic by lending our vehicles to help ease their transportation concerns during the MECQ,” the chief of Honda’s automobile unit in the Philippines said.
Back in April, some of the abovementioned hospitals already received such assistance from HCPI after the carmaker lent 15 vehicles to medical frontliners. The move was done a month after the company suspended plant and dealership operations due to the outbreak of the pandemic.
