Honda Foundation, Inc. donated a total of 104 motorcycle units to the Philippine Red Cross (PRC). The endowment provides the Philippine Red Cross with a fast and high-quality mode of transportation to allow them to quickly deliver humanitarian and life-saving services to communities in times of calamities, amidst the pandemic.
The donation is comprised of a total of 104 motorcycle units. Of the total, 52 are TMX 125 Alphas while the rest are Wave 110 Alphas. All are fitted with insulated top boxes to be used by all of its 104 Chapters throughout the Philippines to transport critical, life-saving blood supply, materials, and equipment.
The motorcycles were personally handed over by Honda Philippines, Inc. President, and HFI Member of the Board of Trustees, Susumu Mitsuishi. They were, in turn, received by Philippine Red Cross Chairman, Sen. Richard Gordon.
"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 Susumu Mitsuishi.
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 proactive approach in addressing local community needs during calamities and national emergencies such as the COVID-19 pandemic that we are currently grappling with," said Mitsuishi.
The donation project is in line with Honda's One Dream campaign, which aims to make Honda motorcycles valuable tools in saving the lives, as well as helping institutions like the PRC by enabling the group to respond rapidly during crisis situations.
