With the Corona virus outbreak and Luzon community lockdown happening, there is a major setback for our healthcare sector and frontliners as there is no public transportation available. It has always been Toyota’s role to be proactive in the Philippine community. Toyota Motor Philippines takes it as a responsibility in helping the country when and where it needs it the most.
Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) is committed to help fight and stop the spread the Corona Virus. Now, under the new TMP president Atsuhiro Okamoto’s leadership, TMP’s initiative is to aid in transport assistance to the frontliners. TMP coordinated with various LGUs and government hospitals to lend their company vehicles for transport assistance. A total of 47 units (including Vios, Innova, Fortuner, Rush, Hiace, FJ Cruiser, RAV4 and other models) are deployed and allocated to government hospitals and LGUs for transport assistance to health care workers and frontliners during the Enhanced Community Quarantine period. The deployment of the vehicles will be until April 14 or as long as the healthcare workers need them.
To avoid the spread of COVID-19, sanitation, safety and healthy SOPs are implemented.
The following hospitals and LGUs already have the Toyota units:
Philippine General Hospital
Mary Johnston Hospital in Manila
City of Manila / Mayor Isko Moreno
Ospital ng Makati
East Avenue Medical Center
Binangonan Lakeview Hospital
Unihealth Paranaque Hospital and Medical Center
Santa Rosa Community Hospital
Navotas City DRRMO
Currently, TMP is connected with social media groups and are coordinating with doctors, other LGUs and hospitals that are in need of transport assistance for their health care workers and frontliners.
TMP believes that with the community’s combined efforts, and everyone doing their part, the Philippines can fight and stop COVID-19.
