Suzuki Philippines, Inc. (SPI) has once again expressed its willingness to help the country fight the dreaded coronavirus (Covid-19) disease, this time, by lending motorcycles to medical frontliners as their transport service.
The initiative was made in partnership with the Office of the Vice President's (OVP) Angat Buhay Program—which is a flagship anti-poverty campaign relying on private partnerships in implementing its activities seeking to help people from the marginalized sector— to support our frontliners in the fight against Covid-19.
Last Thursday (April 23), SPI turned over the 10 Raider J to Vice President Leni Robredo herself.
The said units will serve Angat Buhay's Free Dorm for Healthcare Workers project.
Currently, they have 11 dormitories in Metro Manila and some provinces housing various public hospitals' staff.
Two of these - the Teacher's Village Dorm and Holy Family School in Maginhawa; will benefit from this initiative from Suzuki Philippines.
