Suzuki gives back to the community through its continuous efforts to reach out to our Kababayans, especially those who were hardly stricken by the recent calamities. As tropical depression Lando (international name “Koppu”) left the country with infrastructure, industrial and agricultural devastation that caused a big impact on the lives of most of our countrymen in the North Luzon provinces, the Japanese manufacturer came to provide aid to our fellowmen.
This is the second time Suzuki extended its hand to the Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation, Inc. by giving cash donation.
Suzuki Foundation, Inc. President and concurrent Managing Director of Suzuki Philippines, Inc. Mr. Norminio Mojica imparts, “This is the time when our fellowmen need us most and we, in Suzuki Philippines ensure that we extend our help to those who are in need. It is time for us to pay-it-forward and do our share in rebuilding the lives of our countrymen affected by typhoon Lando.”
“We, in Japan have the same experience in catastrophes and calamities such as earthquakes and typhoons like this one. We feel the hardships of the people affected thus we make it a point to help in any way we can,” Suzuki Philippines, Inc. President Mr. Hiroshi Suzuki shared.
“This help will go a long way. Other than relief operations, funds remaining from the donations will go to livelihood programs that Sagip Kapamilya develops for the typhoon victims to help them in their long term recovery. We are very thankful to Suzuki for trusting us,” Sagip Kapamilya Program Director Mr. Higino Dungo, Jr. said during the donation turnover held recently.
Suzuki immediately attended to the motorists affected by typhoon Lando through its SHARE Program which provides Free check-up, tune-up, oil and oil filter to all Suzuki motorcycle owners. The program was held from from October 23 to November 6 in major towns of Nueva Ecija (Cabanatuan, Rizal and Bongabon), Aurora (Baler and Maria) and Pangasinan (Urdaneta and San Carlos) provinces. The main objective is to ensure that our Kababayans’ motorcycles are working well in order to address to their commuting needs as they recover from the onslaught of the typhoon
