Honda Philippines Inc. (HPI), through Honda Foundation Inc., the corporate social responsibility arm of the Honda group of companies, recently donated motorcycle units to the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) to help mobilize and support its advocacies.
The Honda Philippines team, headed by HPI president Susumu Mitsuishi and HPI executive consultant Armie Reyes, turned over an initial 21 motorcycle units—ten TMX 125 Alpha and eleven Wave 110 Alpha—to the board members of the PRC headed by Sen. Richard Gordon, the chairman and CEO of PRC. A total of 104 motorcycles units will be donated to PRC chapters nationwide.
“Honda has always been committed to helping important institutions, like the Philippine Red Cross, in achieving advocacies that save lives. We also consider this project as our way of giving back to the community,” said Mitsuishi.
The project aims to help the PRC in providing quality life-saving service to the community through motorcycles that can serve as the quickest mode of transportation. It will also help enable on-time delivery of services to its beneficiaries and donors, especially during emergency situations.
As a premier humanitarian organization, the PRC is committed to providing quality life-saving services that protect the life and dignity, especially of indigent Filipinos in vulnerable situations. At present, the organization provides six major services: Blood Services, Disaster Management Services, Safety Services, Health Services, Social Services, Red Cross Youth, and Volunteer Services.
“The Honda Family is grateful for this opportunity to help and collaborate with the Philippine Red Cross in the best way we can as we share the same dream of providing better quality lives for Filipinos,” added Mitsuishi.
The donation is also part of Honda’s ONE DREAM campaign which aims to make Honda products serve as tools in achieving one’s dream and to unite all Filipinos through meaning projects and activities.
