Combatting COVID-19

through Bayanihan

In times wrought with worry and uncertainty, we make it through each day because of a hope – however tiny –  that the sun will shine brighter tomorrow. Puhon! is a Cebuano word that means “hopefully.” In the time of COVID-19, we can only hope that something good will come at the end. This hope burns stronger every time we feel that we are not alone, and when we hear and share inspiring stories that fuel our passion to support those in need. 

Puhon! is an initiative that brings people together to combat COVID-19 in the Philippines by providing a timely and coordinated response to affected communities, and by building a network of courage and inspiration through stories and music.

Inspiring Hope and Courage

through Music

Empower. Uplift. Heal. These are only a few of the influence music has to people. Music is the universal language everyone can understand and express. In challenging times like the COVID-19 outbreak, music can move people to carry hope in their hearts and pass it to others. Puhon is set on inspiring hope and courage in Filipinos through this universal language. Where words fail, music speaks.
