Title: Conjoined Twins from Cebu
Post by: MIKELIGALIG.com on August 22, 2010, 02:00:17 AM
Ten-month-old former conjoined twins Rose Carmel and Rose Carmelette Molit returned home to Cebu Friday, more than two months after they were separated by a team of doctors in Taiwan

The sisters were conjoined in the hips and shared one anus.

The identical twins, who were like celebrities in Taiwan, are daughters of Emily Molit, a public high school teacher in Catmon, Cebu, and Salomeo Molit Jr., a machine operator in Maitland-Smith at the Mactan Economic Zone in Lapu-Lapu City.

Emily Molit, 38, said she was grateful to the Tzu Chi Foundation which sponsored the travel and medical expenses for the separation of the twins in Taiwan.

She had been in Taiwan since March after the foundation committed to sponsor the travel and medical expenses for the separation of the twins.

Her husband, Salomeo, said he could not believe he was holding only one daughter Friday since they were still conjoined when he last saw them.

He said they were ecstatic that the girls have been separated with the help of Tzu Chi.

Tzu Chi is a non-profit organization based in Formosa. For over 40 years, it has done missions of charity, medicine, education, international disaster relief, environmental conservation and community volunteerism.

Former Catmon Mayor Estrella Aribal helped the Molit couple contact Tzu Chi Foundation, which has an office in Mandaue City. (PNA)
