·1 min read

PHILIPPINE Red Cross (PRC) chairman and chief executive officer Sen. Richard Gordon led the online turnover of motorcycle units with the insulated top box to PRC local chapters in North Luzon, Central Luzon, South Luzon, Bicol, Visayas and Mindanao clusters on Dec. 10, 2021.

Last May 2020, Honda Philippines Inc. donated 104 motorcycle units to strengthen PRC’s fleet for immediate response during emergencies. Gordon expressed his gratitude to the company.

Gordon assured that the donations will be beneficial as the Red Cross expands its capacity to reach more areas nationwide.

“The Philippine Red Cross continues to innovate through the new motorcycle units that will enable us to be the first responders in emergencies. These new motorcycle units will be utilized to deliver an immediate response to the most vulnerable,” Gordon said.

Aside from the motorcycles, PRC staff and volunteers underwent Honda safety training for motorcycle riders for proper handling, motorcycle operations, and road safety.

The training was composed of three hours of classroom lectures and three hours of practical motorcycle handling.

“Our goal is to provide immediate assistance to the most vulnerable. The motorcycles can be used to deliver blood, deliver swab and saliva specimens to our molecular laboratories, and other humanitarian interventions to aid the most vulnerable. PRC also provides training to ensure the safety of our motorcycle riders,” Gordon said.
