Hyundai PH makes first salvo of COVID-19 protective gear donations to UP-PGH front liners

April 21, 2020

It’s heart-warming to realize that many are making an effort to help fight the Corona Virus Disease 2019 or COVID-19 with the best way possible. May they be an individual, a group, or a business organization, everyone is pitching in to destroy the deadly pandemic and bring back the normality of life we all enjoy... with a lot of life lessons learned, hopefully.

One of them is Hyundai, the carmaker from Korea. Through its official Philippines distributor, Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. or HARI, it recently donated a number of Personal Protective Equipments (PPEs) to the front liners of the UP-Philippine General Hospital.

A total of 300 PPEs were handed over. This serves as Hyundai Philippines’ first of a series of PPE donation drives to help the brave men and women who face COVID-19 head one so that we could all be safe and healed. That said, HARI aims to donate 2,500 PPEs in total to UP-PGH front liners consisting of doctors, nurses, health workers, janitors, front desk service personnel, security guards, and more.

The donation was channelled through #HyundaiSAGIP, the flagship disaster relief program of HARI’s corporate social responsibility arm, H.A.R.I. Foundation, Inc. (HFI). Established in 2009 as a quick response to Hyundai car owners whose vehicles were damaged by the Ondoy floods, HyundaiSAGIP has since expanded into a response, recovery, and resilience program.

The country’s premier state-run University Hospital and the largest government health facility and referral center is HFI’s staunch partner in the flagship Alagang Breastfriend free breast cancer screening and information dissemination campaign.
