The ongoing efforts of the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) in the fight against COVID-19 get a boost from the Honda Foundation (HFI), which has donated 104 motorcycles for the use of the agency’s frontliners.

On May 20, 52 units each of the TMX125 Alpha and the Wave 110 Alpha were turned over to the PRC by Honda Philippines president and HFI board member Susumu Mitsuishi in a simple ceremony at the PRC headquarters in Mandaluyong City. HFI is the arm of the Honda group of companies that oversees and manages its corporate social responsibility programs and activities in the country. Its advocacies include promoting road safety, protecting the environment, supporting the youth, and addressing local community needs.

“We at Honda are committed to supporting institutions that save Filipino lives like the Philippine Red Cross, in their duties and advocacies,” said Mitsuishi. “We also see this as a way of giving back to the society where Honda operates.”

In a recent feature, we included the Honda TMX125 Alpha, a business-oriented model, as among the top 10 favorite workhorses of delivery-service companies. Not only is it a sturdy and dependable ride, it is also strategically priced, costing only P51,400.

Meanwhile, the Honda Wave 110 Alpha has long shined in the delivery sector thanks to its semi-automatic gearbox, making it a convenient ride in Metro Manila traffic. Both models provided to the PRC are equipped with insulated top boxes, which are essential in transporting medical equipment.

We consider this generous move by the HFI very timely since the PRC is now going full-throttle in its efforts to conduct mass-testing of individuals suspected to be infected with coronavirus. Salute!
