Led by New Zealand’s Ambassador to the Philippines Reuben Levermore, The Amazing Jeepney Race 2 aimed to raise funds for OperationRestore Hope, a non-profit organization composed of New Zealand doctors and medical volunteers who come to the Philippines to conduct free corrective surgery and provide medical needs for children born with cleft lip and palates.
