Early this September, premiere truck and parts distributor and service provider Autokid Trucks, together with leading canned food manufacturer and distributor Mega Global Corporation, launched the Mega Care Caravan, an initiative by the company to help displaced jeepney drivers. Targeting nearly 7,000 jeepney drivers as beneficiaries, the project aims to provide basic necessities and aid to those who lost their livelihood due to the pandemic.

The comprehensive donation program worth P2.5 million sets to distribute donation packages, which will contain essential goods such as water, rice, and Mega Global products, as well as packed lunches and other freebies.

“We chose to team up with Mega Global because we have seen the initiatives they’ve done for the community since the pandemic began. Our goal is to help our jeepney drivers bounce back from their current situation. In order to do so, they need proper nutrition to perform at their best,” explains Autokid CEO Kevin McHale Yao.

Aside from the donation caravan, Autokid is also working on other efforts to help PUV cooperatives navigate through the PUV modernization program being implemented by the national government. By way of educating PUV cooperatives and their members on different aspects of the modernization program, Autokid is allowing the use of their facilities to hold trainings and seminars to support them during this transition period.

Autokid is continuously coming up with ideas to help improve the transportation industry in the country. At the same time, the company is not one to back down from helping the community during these challenging times. “We wanted to use this time to give back to the community. It has been difficult, but we know that we can get through this obstacle if we all try our best to help one another,” says Yao.
