Employees are valuable assets for any company, and the United Asia Automotive Group, Inc. (UAAGI) is showing how much it appreciates its employees by providing them with some much-needed financial aid as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to threaten the livelihood of everyone.

To date, UAAGI has 14 Chery and 29 Foton dealerships in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Each employee working at these dealerships will receive P5,000 in cash that they can use to purchase basic needs for their family and themselves.

UAAGI, the exclusive distributor of Chery and Foton vehicles in the country, is providing this aid to all dealer employees across the country.

"Of course, I'm concerned about how the business will work out after this pandemic," shared UAAGI President Rommel Sytin. “However, at this challenging time, I'm more concerned about the daily struggles of the members of my team.”

The Group said that it has partnered with Cebuana Lhuillier to provide employees with an alternative way to get their money in case the banks at their location are closed due to local lockdown protocols.

"I know how difficult it is to wake up in the morning with the pressure to pay rent, utilities, buy groceries and meet other family expenses. I want to ensure that despite the loss of income, my whole team will still be able to survive the day," Sytin added.

UAAGI suspended all dealership operations in Luzon in line with the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) measures implemented by the Philippine government in the middle of March.

Aside from assisting its own, UAAGI is also extending its helping hand to those outside of its dealership network and help the nation fight the ravages of the COVID-19 crisis.

UAAGI kicked off its corporate responsibility initiatives during the ECQ with a free shuttle service to frontliners. The group has also donated personal protective equipment (PPE) to a number of hospitals and healthcare facilities including Ospital ng Malabon, Tondo Medical Hospital, hospitals in the City of Valenzuela, and Northern Mindanao Medical Center.

"We won't stop reaching out and sharing our blessings even after the pandemic is over. Because to UAAGI, the welfare of both employees and customers is an important matter. Walang maiiwan. Walang mapapabayaan," Sytin concluded.
