The aforementioned outreach activity was the latest in Nissan’s community engagements for this year. Apart from that, Nissan also donated several vehicles to the Philippine Red Cross. To be more specific, the Japanese car brand gave three Nissan Navaras in order for the said organization to operate more efficiently in their response to the Taal Volcano eruption earlier this year.

Back in February, Nissan also handed out meal donations to medical frontliners based in various hospitals in Metro Manila, who all were engaged in the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the wake of two typhoons namely Rolly and Ulysses, Nissan also handed out typhoon relief donations to around 800 families. These families are mostly located in the Bicol and Cagayan regions, two of the hardest-hit by the aforementioned typhoons.
