April 3, 2019 – Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation (MMPC), thru its Corporate Social Responsibility, solidified its commitment to uplift the lives of underprivileged Filipinos by formally signing a Memorandum of Agreement with GMA Kapuso Foundation (GMAKF). As part of the agreement, MMPC donated and delivered a Mitsubishi Strada 4×4 pick-up to GMAKF that will aid the latter in quickly responding for off-road emergency relief operations across the country and to the remote community.
During her speech, GMAKF’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Ms. Luz Annallee Escudero-Catibog recalled that this was not the first time they’ve partnered with MMPC. She mentioned that during the onslaught of Typhoon Usman in Camarines Sur last January, the bridge that MMPC helped built was used as a relocation area because it was the only one not reached by the flood waters.
Also in praise was GMAKF’s Founder and Ambassador Ms. Carmela Tiangco who said, “We are so looking forward to the vehicle. What we can offer you for your generosity is kindness and goodness also. You can be sure that the vehicle will be used for its intended purpose.”
In his message, MMPC Senior Vice President for Corporate Division Mr. Yasuki Maruyama shared, “Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation salutes the GMA Kapuso Foundation in its untiring efforts and strong commitment to uplift the lives of the underprivileged Filipinos most especially during times of disasters and calamities. Thru the Mitsubishi Strada pick-up, we shall be with you in spirit as we continually reach out with our shared vision and aspiration.”
