With Metro Manila and surrounding provinces (Bulacan, Laguna, Cavite, and Rizal) under Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) once more, public transportation has subsequently been suspended as well. As a result, front-liners and healthcare workers that don’t have private modes of transportation are having a hard time getting to and from their homes and respective clinics/hospitals.
To give them the much-needed support in mobility, Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) has lent out a total of 18 vehicles to various medical facilities in Laguna and Cavite. Specifically, vehicles comprising of the City, Brio, Jazz, Civic, Mobilio, BR-V, HR-V, and CR-V models were lent out to seven hospitals in the two provinces.
These hospitals include the New Sinai MDI Hospital and The Medical City South Luzon in Santa Rosa, Laguna; Unihealth-Southwoods Hospital and Medical Center and Perpetual Help Medical Center in Biñan, Laguna; Global Care Medical Centers in Canlubang and Cabuyao, Laguna; and Carmona Hospital and Medical Center in Carmona, Cavite.
“As tighter quarantine measures have been implemented once again to help control the increasing COVID-19 cases in Mega Manila, Honda would like to support the hardworking medical front-liners battling the pandemic by lending our vehicles to help ease their transportation concerns during the MECQ,” said Masahiko Nakamura, Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. president.
With the number of cases continuing to rise, our medical front-liners and healthcare workers need all the support they can get, now more than ever. The last thing they should be worrying about is how to get to work and back. While the government is already providing free transport, these lend out vehicles by Honda will definitely go a long way for the staff, doctors, and nurses at the seven hospitals.
