Isuzu Philippines Corporation capped its 2012 corporate social responsibility program by donating to World Vision Philippines a 4x4 D-Max pickup in December.
The international advocacy organization first sought IPC's assistance in various relief and relocation efforts for more than 10,000 families that were affected by the calamity caused by the recent southwest monsoon.
World Vision Philippines needed tough and capable vehicles for its numerous emergency response missions during the aftermath of the tragedy. IPC, for its part, saw this as an excellent opportunity to help the habagat victims by lending out its D-Max pickups, which were then used to safely transport people and relief goods.
Taking it a step further, IPC deemed it was only proper to assist World Vision Philippines by donating to the organization one 4x4 D-Max.
"Besides helping World Vision Philippines in relief operations and other relevant activities, Isuzu Philippines Corporation's donation of a D-Max pickup is also a token of appreciation to the organization for being a new partner in the TESDA auto-mechanic training center, which Isuzu Motors Limited of Japan is supporting," said IPC president Ryoji Yamazaki. "It is likewise our humble way of returning the favor that society has so generously given us."
