Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has been pretty busy recently, what with the launch of the new Wigo and the imminent arrival of the Kinto car-leasing program. But even so, the carmaker hasn’t let up on its COVID-19 response and relief efforts.
You see, TMP has now committed itself to donating 30 Vios units to several public hospitals in both Metro Manila and Laguna. It recently inked its pledge as it signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the Department of Health (DOH).
According to TMP, 17 cars will be handed over to DOH hospitals while the other 13 will be turned over to hospitals from various LGUs.
“Toyota salutes all healthcare workers in the country—the brave heroes who continue to work relentlessly to care for the sick and preserve life,” said TMP president Atsuhiro Okamoto. “Please accept Toyota’s humble contribution of providing mobility services through our proudly Philippine-made and ever-dependable Toyota Vios.”
“I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude to the Philippine government for its strong leadership during this difficult time. And, of course, I send our utmost appreciation to all our frontliners for their outstanding dedication and selflessness,” said TMP chairman Alfred Ty.
“As a strong partner for nation-building, we are committed to heeding the call of Filipinos as they begin to rebuild their lives,” Ty added.“We need to help them get back to work every day. We have to make sure that we can take them to the hospital when they need care. We must ensure that essential workers can transport themselves to their workplaces to care for our loved ones. When we can once again move freely, we will be there to bring families and friends together.”
