DOT compiled videos and photos of nurses, grocery workers, doctors, janitors, barangay officials, and delivery men who have tirelessly been serving the Filipinos amid the pandemic.
"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," DOT captioned the video posted yesterday, April 4, which has garnered over a million views. "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."
