Whenever we hear the name Sojitz G Auto Philippines (SGAP), images of sleek Geely crossovers often come to mind. But did you know that the car company also has a caring side?
Recently, a fisherfolk from Paombong, Bulacan named Wheng Clemente approached SGAP asking if she can get the Geely tarpaulins that had already been taken down. Her intention was to use these as a barrier against soil erosion beside the river where their fish are cultivated. In exchange, she gave the carmaker some 120 kilos of fish.
Naturally, SGAP-Geely PH obliged and gave her the tarpaulin. The story does not end there, however.
The 120 kilos of fish was then cooked by Heaven’s Touch Cuisine in order to feed some 600 people in Manila and Pasay City. Together with the Walang Iwanan and Kawa Pilipinas charity organizations, the feeding program was timely as it was done a day before the lockdown was imposed earlier this month.
SGAP was not only able to help Wheng Clemente’s business but her community as well.
The carmaker hopes to help Filipinos out in its own little way—throughout this pandemic and beyond.
