As the country’s health care workers continue to battle the COVID-19 pandemic, so too have different manufacturers in the country. In order to serve our front liners, Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI) has rolled out relief efforts and do their part for the Philippines and its citizens.
First is the launch of their BIYAHEnihan program in Southern Luzon. Under its flagship disaster relief program #HyundaiSAGIP, this effort is a means to transport workers and the delivery of medical supplies free of charge. With an initial deployment that includes a County Bus, a Starex, and an HD65, Hyundai hopes that the transportation of front liners and vital equipment can be done faster, more efficient, and safer for all.
Their areas of operation for BIYAHEnihan are St. Francis Cabrini Medical Center (SFCMC) in Sto. Tomas, Batangas and Dr. J. P. Rizal Memorial District Hospital in Calamba, Laguna.
“We hope that this contribution will sustain and inspire our heroic front liners in Southern Luzon. HARI will continue to fill in the gaps as we continue our collective battle to flatten the curve,” said Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo, HARI President and CEO.
Another part of HyundaSAGIP is the donation and delivery of PPEs to the University of the Philippines - Philippine General Hospital (UP-PGH) in Manila. Just recently, HARI delivered an initial count of 300 of the committed 2,500 PPEs for the use of front liners in UP-PGH.
"We cannot stop at this point. We need to help flatten the curve. Our contribution will most certainly boost the morale of our heroic health workers in our united effort to contain the spread of the disease. As partners in health, HARI and UP-PGH are committed to be in solidarity with every Filipino in these unsettling times,” Perez-Agudo later added.
The country has seen acts of solidarity from the automotive industry to support the heroic acts of health care professionals and workers at risk from contractic COVID-19.
