We as friends of Dr. Domino Landicho would like to seek your financial and other support for the re-launching of the literary works of this important Filipino writer. Although he is so simple and a very low profile man, he continuously honor not only the nation by his works but also the pride of our people.
The Friends of Ka Domeng is a volunteer group which is organized for the purposes of re-launching his literary works as to provide the younger generation an inspiration not only in the field of journalism and culture but in their search for an identity and their rightful place in the life of the society. We also seek to develop a culture of reading among young people.
For the last half a century, Dr. Domingo Landicho, poet, fictionist, essayist, editor, columnist, actor, novelist and dramatist published materials reflecting the common man, importance of children and the cause of bringing literature to the impoverished masses.
His poetry has been featured all over the country, his zarzuela has been toured and performed on stages in the US, Canada and Australia by the UP Concert Choros. One of his novels, the Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards Grand Prize winner “Bulaklak ng Maynila” Manila Blossoms has been made into an award-winning movie in 2000. He was a recipient of the prestigious 2003 SEA Write award by Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand.
The “FRIENDS” as we call it, believes that through this endeavor that we can harness the strength and the good of the Filipino’s as reflected in the literary works of Ka Domeng.
