Relief for Abra quake victims

Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC), in partnership with Isuzu Isabela — one of the dealers under by B.M. Domingo Motor Sales Inc. (BMD Motors) — took the initiative to organize a relief operation with Abra Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO). The truck maker aims to extend aid to the displaced families in the province after the strong magnitude 7.0 earthquake that recently struck areas in northwestern Luzon and adjacent regions including Metro Manila last 27 July 2022.

It has been a week after the massive quake, but many people from the mountainous province of Abra are still being evacuated due to the impending danger of more landslides and collapse of unstable structures brought about by the earthquake. The province is slowly recuperating with assistance from different government bodies, international sources, and private companies such as Isuzu Philippines Corporation.

IPC team headed by Imelda Bernas, administration division head and Robert Carlos, sales assistant division head and Isuzu Isabela operations manager, Antonio Benito “Butch” Mijares traveled to Bangued, Abra to deliver relief goods, such as food, water and hygiene kits to 250 families currently settling in the nearby evacuation center. The turnover of relief goods was done in Operation Center (OPCEN) warehouse 1 PDRRMO, Calaba, Bangued, Abra, wherein incoming supplies are being sorted out before handing over to the evacuees.
