Honda Philippines Inc. honors unsung heroes on two wheels during the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The All-New Genio, The New CLICK150i and The New XRM125 are only three of the manufacturer’s top-of-the-line models that can let Filipinos experience the joy of mobility and the ability to help each other during these difficult times.
There is a lot more to explore from Honda and its wide array of motorcycles. Here are four Filipino modern-day heroes riding these motorcycles:
An owner of The New XRM125, Rollon is an accounts developer and an I RIDE SOLO PH member from Barangay Kilagasan, Kabacan, North Cotabato, Philippines. On July 24, 2020, he organized and donated materials for the poster-making contest so parents in the community can express their hardships.
The contest gave the community a sense of togetherness. It also gave away facemasks to the families in the community to stay safe and abide by the quarantine guidelines.
A proud owner of The New CLICK150i , Aguelo founded a humanitarian group of motorcycle riders named Cebu Tabang Express. He created this group to call upon volunteer riders to give free delivery services for the less fortunate people in Cebu, Philippines.
“We aim to deliver groceries, parcels, and even buy medicine for seniors, minors, pregnant, disabled, people without access to the internet and delivery services and people without quarantine passes,” Aguelo said. “We’re a free delivery courier delivering essentials.”
The New CLICK150i enables Aguelo to perform his humanitarian duties despite the challenges of the pandemic. With the help of the volunteers and the group’s beneficiaries, they continue to face the pandemic with their heads held high.
Delivery couriers are not the only heroes on two wheels. A teacher, volunteer and single mother, Cayago uses The All-New Genio to bravely face the dangers of the global health pandemic to help not only her baby but also the youth of tomorrow.
On July 26, 2020, Cayago was on her way to Laguna Bay, Philippines with the Laguna Genio Riders for a charity ride when they came across a group of starving street children before arriving at their destination. They decided to prepare food and come back for them.
“Thank God they were still out there,” Cayago said. “We came back to the place where we saw the street children and there we gave them all the food we prepared. It really touched our hearts to see the smile on their face. We usually count the blessings we receive but should also make our blessings count.”
Zuniga is the president of the XRM Biker’s Club Iligan Chapter. He and other club members took it upon themselves to help the future of this country survive and move forward from this crisis.
On August 23, 2020, the club members donated boxes of bond papers to help teachers ease expenses in making and printing learning modules for their students. They also did another outreach activity to help a family of orphans, which included a pregnant sister.
The bikers brought supplies such as food, clothes and other essentials to provide their basic needs during these trying times. Zuniga said, “Our aim is to share as much as we can, even if it is small shares, to help the teachers make the modules the students will use for remote learning.”
“We also shared with the orphans so that they have food and clothing,” Zuniga continued. “No matter how small the sacrifice, if many will share, all will have enough.”
