If there’s one silver lining that can be found during a crisis, it’s how people from all walks of life come together to help those who are at the forefront. 

From taho vendors to popular figures, many Filipinos have been reaching out to help our overwhelmed healthcare workers and daily wage earners in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Among the celebrities taking the initiative to raise funds for our frontliners is our favorite OPM band, Ben&Ben.

Ben&Ben launched their COVID-19 project via their website Puhon (a Cebuano word that means “hopefully” in English) on March 22, and aims to raise a total of P5 million. 

The funds from the project will be used to purchase Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), food packs, testing kits, and relief goods.

Beneficiaries of the project include the following organizations from various parts of the country: One Nation Against COVID-19 Project, UP Manila National Institutes of Health (NIH), IMPACT Cebu, CDO COVID Donation Drive, and PantawidCovid Project.
