An oil company in the Philippines said it continues to grant aid to the country’s health care institutions in the fight against the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19), this time by providing free fuel to hospitals.
In a press release, Seaoil said the free fuel subsidy is for ambulances and hospital front-liners handling Covid-19 cases.
Seaoil is currently supplying free fuel to more than 20 hospitals nationwide, among them the Philippine General Hospital, Research Institute for Tropical Medicine, San Lazaro Hospital, East Avenue Medical Center, Philippine Children’s Medical Center, and Philippine Heart Center.
The free fuel e-vouchers are given directly by Seaoil to the hospitals.
The fuel e-vouchers are honored in all open Seaoil stations nationwide.
“Seaoil continues to do its part in helping our front-liners #ConquerCOVID19. We are maximizing resources to keep assistance and aid for our employees and the community,” said Glenn Yu, chief executive officer of Seaoil.
Yu noted that Seaoil is in touch with partners to extend free fuel where it is urgently needed.
Seaoil previously announced that a PHP5 gasoline and PHP3 diesel discount in selected stations across the country has been made available for those directly involved in maintaining health and security.
The campaign benefits medical professionals and technicians, hospital and clinic staff, uniformed personnel of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Philippine National Police, Philippine Coast Guard, local government unit officials, health workers, and quarantine enforcers.
