Nissan Philippines Inc. (NPI) recently donated three Nissan Navara units to the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) to assist the humanitarian organization’s disaster and crisis response operations.

Helping our communities through this donation is one way we deliver Nissan’s vision of enriching people’s lives. Particularly by ensuring that the PRC can deliver aid and disaster support confidently with our robust and trustworthy Nissan Navara. We hope that our contribution enhances PRC’s capacity in reaching out to more communities,” said Atsushi Najima, president and managing director of Nissan in the Philippines.

For his part, Senator Richard J. Gordon, PRC chairman and CEO said, "These vehicles will really enhance the Red Cross' capacity to extend assistance to disaster-hit communities in our country. Having an all-terrain capacity, these pick-ups will really be useful when we transport relief items or other equipment for our operations because we can use them even in dirt roads or mountainous areas. We are really very thankful to Nissan Philippines."

With a total value of Php 4.1 million, the Nissan Navara was specially selected for this donation because of the vehicle’s off-road capabilities, reliable load capacity, and powerful engine performance. The three pick-up trucks will be part of PRC’s ongoing operations to deliver services and relief goods to communities affected by calamities and disasters.  

Aside from the company's donation, NPI employees from its national sales office also contributed monetary donations for the PRC’s sustained Taal Volcano eruption relief operations.
