Hyundai Motor Philippines continues its CSR (corporate social responsibility) initiatives in the city of Mandaluyong this time around. The brand recently donated two H-100 units to the Department of Social Welfare and Development‘s head office for the National Capital Region.

The Hyundai light trucks are powered by the highly capable and efficient 2.5-liter CRDi engine. These utility vehicles will be used for the agency’s disaster response and management operations, including its various outreach endeavors.

The turnover ceremony at the agency’s Sanctuary Center was graced by none other than HMPH president Lee Dong Wook, managing director Cecil Capacete, and chief finance officer Hongshik Chin.

Present was DSWD-NCR assistant regional director for operations Miriam Navarro.

“When Hyundai Motor Company shifted into a mobility solutions provider in 2019, it meant enlarging our roles as an automotive manufacturer,” Lee said. “Since then, we have been pursuing innovative ways in which we can provide freedom of movement for the benefit of both people and the community at large. Earlier, DSWD celebrated its 73rd founding anniversary. Please allow me to extend our congratulations. We are thankful that we get to now be a part of continuing your mission as the country’s ‘compassion central’. We look forward to our ever-reliable H-100 becoming your partner in uplifting more Filipino lives.”

May Hyundai and the automotive industry as a whole continue to do their part in making lives better for Filipinos.
