Honda Foundation, Inc. recently donated to the Philippine Red Cross (PRC), a total of 104 motorcycle units (52 red units each of TMX125 alpha and Wave 110 alpha) with insulated top boxes, to be used by all of its 104 Chapters throughout the Philippines. The endowment provides the Philippine Red Cross with a fast and high-quality mode of transportation that will allow them to quickly deliver humanitarian and life-saving services to communities in times of calamity, even amidst the pandemic.
“We at Honda are committed to supporting institutions that save Filipino lives, like the Philippine Red Cross, in their duties and advocacies. We also see this as a way of giving back to the society where Honda operates.” said Mr. Susumu Mitsuishi, HFI Member of the Board of Trustees.
Honda Foundation, Inc. (HFI) is the arm of the Honda group of companies in the Philippines overseeing and managing its corporate social responsibility programs and activities, such as promoting road safety, protecting the environment, supporting the youth, and addressing local community needs.
“This is also the Honda Group’s way of taking a pro-active approach in addressing local community needs during calamities and national emergencies, such as the COVID-19 pandemic that we are currently grappling with.” Mr. Mitsuishi added.
The donation project is in line with Honda’s ONE DREAM campaign, which aims to make Honda motorcycles the tool in saving lives. It’s also a step in the company’s plan toward helping institutions like the PRC by enabling rapid response and delivery during crisis situations.
