In line with the country’s collective efforts to manage the COVID-19 pandemic, Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) continues to extend assistance to both frontliners and customers amid the ongoing Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine.
For healthcare and essential-services frontliners whose daily commute has been affected by the suspension of public transport, TMP has lent out its company vehicles for their use through local government units and hospitals. Forty-seven units have been deployed to help bring urgent care to patients, in addition to other Toyota vehicles now being used by volunteer groups to distribute personal protective equipment (PPE) to various medical institutions.
In Santa Rosa, Laguna, where the carmaker’s local manufacturing facility is located, the Toyota Motor Philippines Foundation has distributed rice and groceries to a number of communities, including the Toyota Santa Rosa Gawad Kalinga Village, which is home to more than 150 families. The foundation has also donated PPEs to the Santa Rosa Community Hospital.
Frontliners who are Metrobank Toyota Mastercard credit-card holders will also receive Petron fuel rebates from April 15-30, 2020.
Toyota owners who have secured loans via Toyota Financial Services Philippines, meanwhile, will benefit from extended payment terms. Also extended are expiring warranty coverages as well as expiring insurance policies under Toyota Insure. A 30-day grace period for scheduled periodic maintenance services within the quarantine period will also be given.
“In these challenging times, Toyota Motor Philippines is one with our nation’s leaders, healthcare workers, frontliners, and volunteer groups in fighting this pandemic,” reads the company’s official statement. “We continue to empower people through mobility and advocating for safety.”
