“We Filipinos are proud inheritors of a great past.  In 2021, we join the world in commemorating one of the greatest achievements of humankind: 
the Philippine part in the first circumnavigation of the world.”


As a tribute to our modern-day heroes, we made a short video sourced from captures of everyday kindness; guided by the same spirit in its making. We thank Ely Buendia, who composed “With a Smile” for the legendary band, the Eraserheads, for generously allowing the use of his composition to pay them tribute. Singer and songwriter Bea Lorenzo, whose grandfather and father are medical doctors, performs the reworking of the classic anthem.Filipinos are known for their smiles. Even if we can’t see the smiles behind the masks, their warmth can be felt in acts of compassion and kindness.As we wait out the end of this challenging time, let us never forget to show the world who we truly are: a nation of kind, caring, and compassionate people.#WeHealAsOneThank you to our contributors:Alexis Agacite Mago, Andrea Olivar, Anne Tiongco, Arlene Arbas of DOH, Bea Caubat, Benjie Marasigan, Blane Rosales, Brylle Eldrin Balana, Camille Dowling Ibanes, Cecille Escano, Chad Chacon, Charlie Magne Amor, Coca-Cola, Daddy Gabby Bacarro, Danika Madulid, Department of Health, DLSU, DLS-College of St. Benilde, Dr. Gene Tiongco, Dr. Gerardo D.
