Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) isn’t idly sitting on its hands as the threat of COVID-19 sweeps across the country. The Japanese carmaker is lending a handful of its fleet vehicles to support frontline efforts to halt the spread of the coronavirus, providing transport for healthcare workers to several hospitals in and outside of Metro Manila.
“From my last post, I got very good suggestions from my Facebook friends to lend support to our frontliners, in whatever way we can. I would like to thank you for your suggestions,” TMP president Hiro Okamoto said in an Instagram post.
“We have coordinated with various LGUs and government hospitals to lend our company vehicles for the daily transportation of health workers. Rest assured that we are doing the best we can, even in small ways,” adding that he hopes everyone will remain safe and healthy during these uncertain times.
If any of the vehicles in the photos above look familiar, it’s because a number of them are media lend-out units that have made their rounds across the local motoring beat. At the very least, the silver Toyota RAV4 and dark red Toyota Rush seen above have been featured on the Top Gear Philippines website at one point or another.
It’s nice to see that TMP is making good use of its fleet. God knows our healthcare workers can use all the help they can get.
