IPC on October 25 also donated to the ABS-CBN Foundation Sagip Kapamilya P1 million, with the amount meant to assist victims of the recent earthquake in Bohol and Cebu. Handing over the donation to ABS-CBN Foundation Sagip Kapamilya Head and Program Director Tina Monzon-Palma were Izumina, Okumura and IPC Assistant Vice President for Administration Dave Yandoc. “Tragedies are as much a time of sadness as they are of hope. And to help the victims who have suffered much in the recent natural calamities remain hopeful, it is up to the more fortunate to render unconditional assistance in whatever way possible. In this regard, we at Isuzu Philippines Corporation express our sympathies and humbly submit our contribution to the various efforts that seek to give hope to those who need it most,” Izumina said. IPC has in the past several years conducted various corporate social responsibility programs that sought to positively impact people’s lives, especially of those who live in communities where the company operates. Over the years, IPC’s initiatives have included environmental preservation, educational promotion and other social projects.
