The Manila City Government has partnered up with Grab Philippines to hire 2,000 displaced tricycle drivers and motorcycle owners who also lost their jobs to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.
Mayor Francisco ‘Isko Moreno’ Domagoso said the “Grab-Manila Socio-economic Recovery Initiative” will provide economic opportunities to affected residents and businesses of the global pandemic.
“Dalawa ang matutulungan nito: ang mga trabahante at tsaka ang mga negosyo. Doon naman sa mga natanggap na at matatanggap pa, pagbutihan po ninyo ang trabaho, (It will help two things: the worker and the businesses. Those who are already hired or will be hired, work hard)” he said.
Meanwhile, Grab Philippines country head Brian Cu said this is their way of giving back to the city of Manila.
“We want to help those merchants get into the digital world and boost their sales,” he said. AAC
