62nd Leyte Landing committee searches for liberation babies

Tacloban City (October 13) -- The Search is now on for Liberation Babies. This was announced by the Philippine Information Agency, the chairman for the Public Information and Documentation Committee of the 62nd Leyte Landings celebration.

The Search for a male and female Liberation Babies is being conducted jointly with the Province of Leyte, the DYVL Action Radio and DYDW.

PIA 8 Director Olive Tiu said that the search is for a male and a female liberation babies which means that they must have been born on October 20, 1944 in the province of Leyte. In order to prove these, the contestants must present their birth certificate at the Regional Office of the Philippine Information Agency.

The search will highlight the babies who were born during the Leyte Landings which played an important role as it marked the Liberation of the Philippines from the Japanese Occupation.

The contestants must present their birth certificates to the PIA 8 Regional Office on October 17 from 8:00 o’clock in the morning to 2:00 o’clock in the afternoon. The contestants must also be able to tell a story about their being born during the liberation of Leyte which will be recorded. The first male and female Liberation Babies will receive cash prizes of P1,500.00 each.

The winners will be announced at the DYVL Action Radio and at the DYDW AM radios in the city of Tacloban.

The Search for the Liberation Babies was conceptualized by the members of the Public Information and Documentation Committee last year for implementation this year.

The Committee is composed of Director Olive Tiu of the Philippine Information Agency as chairperson and with the following members: Ms. Babes Custodio of DYVL, Mr. Fred Balbuena of Radio DYDW, Ms. Carolina Montilla of Eastern Tribune, Mr. Ven Labro of Leyte Samar Daily Express and Atty.
