The Capitol has answered the call for help from the 33-year-old father of the quadruplets, who were born at the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center a week ago.

This developed after Cebu Gov. Hilario Davide III promised that the Cebu Provincial government would shoulder the hospital bills, the milk for the infants, and food for the family.

Davide said he ordered the Provincial Social Welfare Development (PSWD) to look after the needs of the four infants and the family.

Kenneth Tongol, the father, made a plea for help because he and his wife are both jobless and the quadruplets who were born last April 28 were born premature and were still confined at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of the VSMMC.

In a phone interview, Tongol said that he sought the help of the PSWD because his common law wife, Irene Rodriguez, 30, is unable to produce adequate milk for the infants because of her frail health.

The couple’s quadruplets were born premature at six months of conception. They are two boys named Kenshi and Kendro and two girls named Izeah and Izabelle.

The infants were delivered by Rodriguez, who is from Camotes Island, on the morning of April 28 through Caesarian section.

Aside from the quadruplets, the couple also have a two-year old daughter.
