SHELL Ramps Up Efforts to Keep Visayas Frontliners on the Go
As the country continues to battle with the dreaded COVID-19, Pilipinas Shell has continued to ramp up its efforts to help the frontliners — the individuals who day and night continue to risk their lives and those of their loved ones to help control the spread of the pandemic.
Focusing on the health and safety of every Filipino, Pilipinas Shell has increased the support provided by its retail gas stations to ensure that frontliners get to perform their duties without delay by making sure that they reach their destinations safely and on time.
Pilipinas Shell has been providing free fuel to tow of its Visayan partners — the Home Quarantine and Protection Project in Negros and the Chong Hua Hospital in Mandaue City, Cebu.
Free fuel is offered to these partners to aid in the proper and uninterrupted transportation of frontliners, mobilization of ambulances, and other ongoing relief efforts.
Free fuel has also been given to Vallacar Transit Inc (VTI) whose Ceres bus line has partnered with the Bacolod City government to deploy 21 of its buses to transport health workers and other essential personnel.
Shell’s Project Bayanihan has also extended its discount offering of Php3.00 for gasoline and Php2.00 for diesel at around 151 gas stations in Luzon and the Visayas to aid health workers, police and military personnel, and logistics drivers who are doing their share in dealing with this crisis.
Four of Shell’s retail stores in Bacolod City have also started offering 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 boos their immune system.
Other retail partners have also done their share by providing additional support. Partners have been generous in providing free coffee, face masks, and snacks at their stations. Some even do deliveries to hospitals in Manila.
Shell’s initiatives in the Visayas region are part of the petroleum giant’s commitment to be a partner in nation-building. For 106 years, Shell has done its share to power progress in the country. And even with the recent circumstances, Shell continues to do its best to prepare the country for tomorrow’s recovery efforts.
