An Isuzu Mobile Kitchen truck was donated to the Laguna Chapter of the Philippine Red Cross in support of the Hot Meals on Wheels emergency mass feeding program. This is in keeping with the corporate mantra of Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) to be Your Responsible Partner.
The formal turnover of the Isuzu Mobile Kitchen truck was held on January 8 at the Philippine Red Cross Headquarters. Representatives from IPC led by IPC president Hajime Koso, as well as officers of the Philippine Red Cross led by chairman Richard Gordon, and the Philippine Red Cross Laguna Chapter headed by Frank Sorromero witnessed the simple ceremonies.
“During the COVID-19 pandemic, life’s emergencies don’t stop and neither does the work of the Philippine Red Cross. Each day, indigent Filipinos rely on them to help prevent and lessen their suffering. The Philippine Red Cross ensures that Filipino families have access to food and other basic needs in light of the heavy economic cost of the pandemic,” said Koso.
The Isuzu Mobile Kitchen truck is equipped with a complete mini kitchen that can cook, prepare, and serve hot meals quickly and efficiently right where they are needed. This is ideal for the daily operation of the Philippine Red Cross, especially in their various feeding programs and disaster response operations nationwide.
IPC and the Red Cross have had an active partnership in responding to disasters and national emergencies in previous years. Last year, the Philippine Red Cross was among the partner recipients of IPC’s Kasama Mo campaign, IPC’s continuing response to the global pandemic. IPC also donated one Isuzu D-MAX pick-up to the Red Cross to assist in their relief operation during the Taal Volcano Eruption.
The donation of the Isuzu Mobile Kitchen truck, however, is special since IPC is joined by its long-time dealer group INTECO as represented by its president Raymond Jarina and trusted bodybuilder Truckmaster headed by Johnny Pronaci in customizing the mobile kitchen body of the Isuzu truck, making sure it will be safe for long-distance travel and can efficiently connect to water and power supply as needed.
