Austin, Texas (PRWEB) October 27, 2011
Howdy Honda-one of the leading Honda dealerships in Austin, would like to reach out and give our sincere sympathy and condolences to those affected by the flooding in Thailand. To help aid the damaged areas the Honda group, and partnering companies, will donate 280 million yen, approximately 3.7 million US dollars, toward the relief efforts in Thailand.
On top of monetary relief, the Honda Group in Thailand, has also provided 200 sets of Honda GX160 engines via Thai government to provide power in areas effected heavily by the flooding.
Hiroshi Kobayashi, COO of Regional Operation (Asia & Oceania) for Honda Motor Company believes that the decision to provide aid was a no brainer, stating that “honda has been doing business in Thailand for 47 years, and we have long appreciated and valued the support and hard work of the people of Thailand. We are also very grateful for the tremendous support the people of Thailand provided to Japan following the major earthquake that struck the eastern part of Japan in March of this year. We would like to provide support and our wishes for the earliest possible relief and recovery in Thailand.”
It is believed that Honda will also donate several pumps, high-pressure water sprayers, generators and other relief goods varying on the state of the impacted areas.
