Bicol anticipates 100 millionth Pinoy

LEGAZPI CITY—The 100 millionth Filipino will be born around 12:06 A.M. Philippine Standard Time (PST) on Sunday, July 27, according to estimates by the Philippine Statistics Authority.

In Bicol, the Commission on Population (POPCOM) has announced that it will launch a search for seven babies who will be born on or around the aforementioned time to mark the population milestone.

Six of these babies will come from each of the region’s provinces, while one will be from a chosen city.

POPCOM Bicol Regional Director Magdalena Abellera said that the 100 millionth baby is a symbol of hope and challenge.

Starter kit


Meanwhile, POPCOM Bicol Planning Officer Josephine Chua announced that each of the babies will be given a starter kit worth P5,000, provided that they are born in a government-licensed facility or hospital through normal or spontaneous delivery.

Official nomination forms, which need to be certified by the attending doctor, will be distributed to hospitals across the region prior to July 27.
