It’s summer time! It’s “Operation Tuli” once again. Circumcision or “pagtutuli” is considered by an overwhelming number of Filipinos as an “obligatory rite of passage to manhood.”

The word “circumcision” comes from Latin circum (meaning “around) and caedere (meaning “to cut”).

Headed by the SK Federation in cooperation with the City Health Office and Population Commission Office with the support of Mayor James Gordon, Jr., the project has switched to high gear.

The first seven (7) barangays of Olongapo City, namely Barangay New Asinan, New Banicain, Barretto, East Bajac-Bajac, East Tapinac, New Kababae and Gordon Heights have conducted their respective Operation tuli on April 14, 16, 17, 20,21, 24 and 27 in their barangay health centers.

Registered midwives of City Health Office and Population Commission Office (POPCOM) conducted the circumcision procedures where according to them have recorded a six year old boy as the youngest patient from East Bajac-Bajac and a twenty four year old of Barretto as the oldest patient.

Barangay New Asinan has recorded twenty eight(28), New Banicain 46, Barretto 157, East Bajac-Bajac 170, East Tapinac 76, Gordon Heights 154 and New Kababae 32 number of patients. The remaining 10 barangays are scheduled to conduct their operation tuli in the next few days.

Aside from the CHO and PopCom , barangay officials councilors and SK officials are on full support of the project which offers free medicines and services supplied by the city government.

Inquiries may be directed to the City Health Office or Population Commission Office located at the ground floor of the city hall complex or call telephone number 222-4003.
