The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected the livelihoods of almost everyone in the country. From businesses to office work, the virus has stirred the people’s ability to earn a living. With some families not having the ability to buy food and other necessities, some are forced to rely on donations alone to get by.
To give a helping hand to those in need, United Asia Auto Group Inc (UAAGI), the official distributor of Chery Auto Philippines (CAA), donated relief goods to the Philippine National Police (PNP). Under the PNP’s ‘Rektang Bayanihan’ Food, UAAGI turned over rice, canned goods, and other food products to the PNP. The company has been supporting the PNP’s project since the start of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in mid-March.
The turnover ceremony was held at the PNP’s Camp Olivas in Pampanga where representatives from CAA and UAAGI were welcomed by PNP Region 3 Director Gen. Rhodel Sermonia. Thanks to the automaker’s donations, the project’s aim to bring food to the poorest of the poor in rural areas have been made easier.
Despite the country shifting towards the more relaxed General Community Quarantine (GCQ), not everyone was fortunate enough to stockpile on food and water. But thanks to the actions by CAA and the PNP, people living in rural areas that badly need food can rely on the efforts made by Chery and Philippine National Police.
