Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) continues its steadfast support to Caritas Manila, one of the country’s most recognized and longest-running Catholic relief, development, and social service organizations. In a simple ceremony held last October 29 in the Caritas Manila grounds in Pandacan, Manila, IPC officials, led by its President Hajime Koso, turned over one unit of the Isuzu D-Max to representatives of Caritas Manila, led by Rev. Fr. Antonio Pascual. Also present during the event is Isuzu Gencars Chairman D. Edgard A. Cabangon, whose family has been a constant supporter of the organization.
Aside from the donation of the Isuzu D-MAX, Caritas Manila has also been one of the chosen beneficiaries of IPC’s “Kasama Mo” campaign aimed to help the country stop the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. The organization had also received sets of personal protective equipment (PPE) from IPC’s customers and stakeholders last July 10 and October 1. IPC’s efforts reflect the company’s true spirit of being “Your Responsible Partner”, as it continues to reach out and extend assistance to members of society who need it the most, especially during these challenging times.
In his speech during the turnover ceremony, Koso said, “Isuzu Philippines is truly delighted to be able to help in the endeavors of Caritas Manila to enrich and uplift the lives of the Filipinos through various social and livelihood programs. We firmly believe that this Isuzu D-MAX would support your future operations in terms of disaster relief and community outreach in the various parts of the country.”
The durable, powerful, and efficient Isuzu D-Max is seen to be invaluable for the day-to-day operations of Caritas Manila which would greatly help them with their logistics and transportation needs. With the D-Max’s proven reliability and quality, combined with the prompt and efficient parts and maintenance services of Isuzu dealerships nationwide, Caritas Manila can expect to optimize its use, and reach more people who need help the most even in hard-to-access locations.
Caritas Manila is a non-profit organization that serves as the lead social service and development ministry of the Catholic Church in the Philippines. It serves the 13 vicariates of the Archdiocese of Manila and acts as a catalyst for capacity-building and networking for five other Metro Manila dioceses.
