Isuzu companies here in the Philippines have increased their giving in order to help those whose lives were torn apart by super typhoon Yolanda. Isuzu Philippines Corporation and Isuzu Autoparts Manufacturing Corporation donated PHP 1 Million each to World Vision Philippines. This is on top of the previous PHP 500,000 donation the company made to the GMA Kapuso Foundation for the victims of Typhoon Santi in Nueva Ecija, and P1 million to ABS-CBN Foundation Sagip Kapamilya for victims of the earthquake that devastated parts of Bohol and Cebu.
Isuzu Motors Limited (IML) of Japan also contributed to the Red Cross for Yolanda relief Efforts. All of the donations from Isuzu are part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, which is an important part of their business.
“There are probably no words, no act, that could be said or done to people who have lost almost everything, including the lives of their loved ones, in the tragedy that struck parts of the Visayas in the aftermath of Typhoon Yolanda,” said IPC President Nobuo Izumina. “But, in our humble way, Isuzu Philippines Corporation would like to extend assistance through a donation to World Vision Philippines, which may help in alleviating the plight of survivors as they rebuild their communities and lives.”
Since last year, World Vision has been IPC’s partner in the TESDA Automotive Mechanic Training Center in Tacloban, Leyte–one of the hardest-hit areas in all of the country.
The organization advocates the relief and development of children, their families and their communities to ensure their welfare, and aims to overcome poverty and injustice in society. Serving people worldwide regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender, it respects other people’s faith and culture, and does not attach conditions to the assistance it provides.
