KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How much was the donation given by Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation to help Typhoon Odette victims?

    The company gave P1 million through the Philippine Red Cross.
  • How is the P1-million donation going to be utilized?

    It will be used specifically to prepare relief packages for households in Surigao Del Norte who are moving out of temporary shelters and going to transitional housing.
