SHELL Ramps Up Efforts to Keep Visayas Frontliners on the Go
As the country battles with COVID-19, Pilipinas Shell has increased its efforts to help the frontliners. These are the individuals who continue to risk their lives each day to help control the spread of the virus.
Pilipinas Shell has increased the support that its retail gas stations provide. Their aim is to make sure that all frontliners remain healthy and safe during the pandemic. They also do it to ensure that frontliners get to perform their duties without delay.
Pilipinas Shell for Frontliners
Pilipinas Shell provides free fuel to two of its Visayan partners. Their partners are the Home Quarantine and Protection Project in Negros and the Chong Hua Hospital in Mandaue, Cebu.
They offer free fuel to these partners to aid in the proper transportation of frontliners. Also, free fuel is used on ambulances and other ongoing relief efforts.
Moreover, Vallacar Transit Inc (VTI) whose bus line has partnered with the city of Bacolod, has also received free fuel. The bus line used 21 of its buses to transport health workers and other essential personnel.
Shell’s Project Bayanihan
Shell’s Project Bayanihan has also extended its discount offering to frontliners. Discounts of Php3.00 for gasoline and Php2.00 for diesel are offered at around 151 gas stations in Luzon and the Visayas. This is to aid health workers, uniformed personnel, and logistics drivers who are doing their share in dealing with this crisis.
Four of Shell’s retail stores in Bacolod City also offer Free Vitamic C to all station patrons. Since the start of the program, over 2,000 Vitamin C capsules have been given out to help customers boost their immune system.
Other retail partners have also provided additional support. Partners have provided free coffee, face masks, and snacks at their stations. Some even do deliveries to hospitals in Manila.
Shell’s efforts in the Visayas are part of the company’s promise to be a partner in nation-building. For 106 years, Shell has done its share to power progress in the country. To this day, Shell continues to do its best to prepare the country for tomorrow’s recovery efforts.
