Inteco, one of the pioneer Isuzu dealer partners of Isuzu Philippines Corp (IPC), donated last February 16 an Isuzu ambulance to the Likhaan Center for Women’s Health (Likhaan).
The handover ceremony was held at the showroom of Isuzu Quezon Avenue and was headed by women’s rights advocate Senator Risa Hontiveros, Likhaan board chair Dr. Guy Claudio, Women’s Business Council Philippines Inc (WomenBizPH) chair Mylene Abiva, IPC VP for sales Yasuhiko Oyama, Inteco president and CEO Raymond Jarina, and Isuzu Quezon Avenue branch manager Ranvin Jarina.
Isuzu dealer partner’s donation done in collaboration with WomenBizPH
Likhaan Center for Women’s Health is a non-government organization advocating for health and equality, particularly for women and poor and disadvantaged people. Its programs include community-based health clinics and community education, organization, and mobilization in poverty-stricken communities.
WomenBizPH is an advocacy group and the lead private sector partner of the government. It’s composed of the country’s top women business leaders and entrepreneurs who promote and empower women in the Philippines.
With the Isuzu ambulance’s reliability and fuel efficiency, the unit will perform a key function in Likhaan’s continuing advocacy for health care for women and the underprivileged.
In his speech, Inteco president Jarina said that this donation is a tribute to two empowered women, Maria Anos (of Anos Research Manufacturing, which designed the Isuzu ambulance) and his mother Amada Ganzon Jarina.
“I have no doubt that this N-Series ambulance with its proven transport efficiency, safety, reliability, and durability will go a long way to save lives and improve the quality of life of many Filipino women,” said Oyama.
The brand-new Isuzu ambulance has been designed to comply with the Department of Health’s standards.
