MANILA: Last June 16, Toyota Motor Philippines Corporation (TMP) signed an agreement with the Department of Health (DOH) to support the efforts of the national government in dealing with the mobility needs of medical frontliners during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The auto company has confirmed its commitment to donate 30 Philippine-made Toyota Vios units to different public hospitals in Laguna and Metro Manila.
DOH Secretary Francisco Duque III attended the event held at the agency headquarters in Sta. Cruz, Manila. Toyota officials present during the turnover ceremony were TMP Chairman Alfred V. Ty, Vice Chairman David Go, and President Atsuhiro Okamoto.
Japan Ambassador to the Philippines Koji Haneda was also present during the event.
The culmination of the event was the handover of one Toyota Vios unit each to the San Lorenzo Ruiz Women’s Hospital, San Lazaro Hospital, and Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center. Completion of the turnover of Vios units is expected by July 2020.
TMP's Ty also acknowledged the strong leadership of the Philippine government during these challenging times. He expressed appreciation to healthcare workers for their dedication and effort in combating the dreaded virus.
He also gave reassurance that the auto company will continuously work towards helping Filipino workers get back on track and adjust to the “new normal” through efficient and reliable mobility solutions.
Aside from the donation of Vios units, TMP also collaborated with Toyota Mobility Foundation (TMF) to provide 10 disinfected and connected shuttles to the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) healthcare frontliners. All shuttles have complied with the “new normal” protocols to guarantee the protection and safety of healthcare workers.
