Chevron companies in the Philippines band together to donate cash and fuels amounting Php1,000,000 to provide transportation and equipment to front liners and health workers in the battle against Covid-19.
Chevron Philippines Inc. (Caltex), together with Chevron Holdings Inc. (CHI), donated P500,000 to the Philippine General Hospital Medical Foundation Inc. (PGJMFI) to cope with the shortage of medical supplies and personal protective equipment (PPE).
Caltex also collaborated with JAC Liner in providing fuel support amounting to P250,000 to four shuttle buses servicing front liners and health workers with routes starting from Paranaque Integrated Terminal to Alabang, and Ortigas to Shaw Boulevard until the first week of April.
Likewise, Caltex Makati Credit Cooperative donated P25,000 to Kaya Natin! Foundation to aid in transporting hospital workers from various pick up and drop off points in Metro Manila. Caltex employees meanwhile leaded the donation drive.
Caltex also partnered with Grab Philippines for its GrabBayanihan with Php300 daily gas voucher provided to each Grab volunteer driver-partners, wherein designated GrabBayanihan Cars provide 24-hour free transport service that can accommodate two healthcare workers at a time, following the government’s social distancing guidelines.
According to CPI Country Chairman Louie Zhang, “Caltex is one with the Philippine nation and our frontliners and health workers in battling this global pandemic. We are actively responding to the COVID-19 outbreak and while we continue to closely monitor our operating environment, we are also supporting PGH, JAC Liner, Kaya Natin! Foundation, and Grab Philippines in their mission to help curtail this virus. We hope this crisis will soon be over and that everyone stays safe.”
Meanwhile, Caltex stations in Luzon remain open amidst the enhanced community quarantine. In addition to raising hygiene standards in the stations, regular temperature checks, observance of 1-meter social distancing, and more frequent sanitation of areas with high human touchpoints are also implemented. Customers are also encouraged to utilize contactless payment methods and to make use of the disinfectants or hand sanitizers located at the cashiers.
