ISUZU companies in the Philippines, both subsidiaries of Isuzu Motors Limited (IML) of Japan, have each contributed P1 million to World Vision Phils., an internationally recognized Christian organization, for the victims of Tyhoon Yolanda.
IML has also contributed to the Japan Red Cross for Typhoon Yolanda efforts. All Isuzu companies’ donations to various organizations form part of the Isuzu brand’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, which are an integral component in the way it operates its business. In the Philippines, IPC’s CSR efforts have included projects concerned with environmental preservation, educational promotion and livelihood assistance.
“Isuzu would like to extend assistance through a donation to World Vision Philippines, which may help in alleviating the plight of survivors as they rebuild their communities and lives,” said IPC President Nobuo Izumina.
World Vision Phils., beginning last year, has been IPC’s partner in the IML-funded Tesda Automotive Mechanic Training Center in Tacloban, Leyte—the worst-hit location during Typhoon Yolanda.
