In July of 2022, Isuzu Philippines Corporation pledged to realign its business processes to a more sustainable and environmentally responsible future dubbed “Road to Progress." This vision supports the Sustainable Development Goals put forth by the United Nations, a blueprint for peace and prosperity for the coming years. As part of the Road to Progress vision, Isuzu Philippines Corporation launched a cash donation initiative to selected hospitals throughout the country.
Fulfilling their tagline of “Your Responsible Partner," IPC donated a total of P1 million in cash to four chosen health institutions here in the Philippines, each hospital receives P250,000 to provide for their ongoing projects and routine daily expenses.
Northern Mindanao Medical Center in Cagayan De Oro and Irosin District Hospital in Sorsogon were the first two hospitals to receive P250,000. Before the year ended, IPC honored their pledge as they turned over the last two P250,000 cash donations to the Philippine Children’s Medical Center (PCMC) in Quezon City and Dumarao Medicare Hospital in Capiz.
Two separate turnover ceremonies were held, with IPC Assistant Vice President for Administration Ms. Imelda Bernas, and IPC Sales Assistant Division Head Mr. Robert Carlos leading the helm.
“We are glad that we are able to extend assistance to different hospitals nationwide through this Road to Progress donation project. As Filipino’s responsible partner, our goal here is to be able to give back to the community, particularly those that are in dire need of assistance. Together with our dealers, we hope to uplift the lives of many more Filipinos with our projects in line with our renewed vision.”
As for how these institutions plan on utilizing the cash aid, PCMC is currently expanding and enhancing its existing facilities. Although PCMC is a government-run hospital specializing in pediatrics, it must also handle the training of future medical practitioners, being a hospital and training ground simultaneously. Through the cash donation from IPC, a new shed to cover their waiting area will be constructed to protect patients, parents, personnel, and expensive equipment while waiting.
On the other hand, Dumarao Medicare Hospital (DMH), a hospital operated by the local government of Dumarao, Capiz, caters to several barangays in their vicinity. Through the cash assistance provided by IPC, Dumarao Medicare Hospital will be acquiring more medical equipment and supplies to further serve their patients.
