Music streaming company Spotify has partnered with non-profit international organization Starkey Hearing Foundation to provide hearing aids to people in Puerto Princesa, Palawan.
“Last November, Spotify became a sponsor and joined us in Puerto Princesa to help us bring hearing to the community,” Richard Brown, president and board chair for Starkey Hearing Foundation, said in a media release.
“Based on the success of this incredible experience, we all recognized the opportunity to do more to accomplish our shared vision to bring hearing and music to people around the world,” he added.
Spotify sent volunteers to the Philippines to help Starkey Hearing Foundation on its mission by providing campaign that targets its over 60 million Spotify listeners in 58 countries. The first project they launched was the “First Song” which helped the foundation to reach an estimated 900 deaf people in the country. The group welcomes everyone to donate in order for them to reach its goal of 1,000.
