“We remain optimistic that we will all get through this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic.

To show our continued appreciation and support, we at CPI and our partners implemented fuel discounts for our frontliners. We have also initiated donation drives to affected families. Let us all stay indoors, stay safe and do our part to flatten the curve,” shares CPI Country Chairman Louie Zhang.

Chevron companies also made an earlier donation of almost PHP1 million to Philippine General Hospital Medical Foundation Inc., JAC Liner, Kaya Natin! Foundation, and Grab Philippines in support of the COVID-19 frontliners.
