World's Seven Billionth Baby - Danica May Camacho in Pictures

in Society

A newly born baby girl named Danica May Camacho from the Philippines has been chosen as the world's symbolic “seven billionth person” by the United Nations. Danica came into the world, weighing 2.5kg at two minutes before midnight on Sunday amid an explosion of press camera flashes at Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital in Philippines’ capital of Manila. This tiny and innocent, little girl not only symbolizes the milestone but also gives warnings that there may be too many humans for the planet’s resources.


Danica’s mother happily said that “She looks so lovely”. Her name means morning star. She is the second child for Camille Dalura and Florante Camacho. Danica's birth is not only significant to her parents, but she is also one among the world’s symbolic seven billionth occupants. Here are some pictures of Danica May Camacho:

When Danica was born, the world’s population reaches seven billion on October 31. This milestone presents not only an opportunity but also a challenge for the planet. Danica May Camacho and her parents were met by officials from the United Nations, who recognized her as world's symbolic “seven billionth person” in order to draw attention to challenges of the world’s growing population.

Danica had been hoped to arrive exactly at the stroke of midnight but the baby had other ideas. She was born two minutes early, but doctors decided that was close enough to count for a Monday birthday. Danica and her parents were presented a small cake by UN officials as the little girl lay on her mother’s chest wearing a knitted red hat. Danica's family also received a scholarship grant for her education from well-wishers and some money to help them open a shop.
