‘’2010 FREE OPERATION TULI’’
The local government of Olongapo City will hold its Annual Summer Program “Operation Tuli” under the leadership of no less than Olongapo City Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. in partnership with the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) Federation under its president Cheenee F. Hoya.
Mayor Gordon has directed SK Federation President Hoya and other SK Chairmen to confer with their barangay constituents and announce the Free Operation Tuli so that a lot of adolescent male can benefit from the circumcision project of the local government.
Free Operation Tuli aims to give free circumcision procedure to over two thousand (2,000) boys from the seventeen (17) barangays in Olongapo. This yearly endeavor is meant to help parents from the barangays who can't afford to have their sons circumcised in the hospital, private or otherwise. “Ang pondo para sa mga gagamiting gamot at medical supply ay buhat sa SK at local fund,” SK Pres. Cheenee Hoya said.
With the combined efforts of the local government and SK Federation, the City Population Office (POPCOM) headed by Virginia Navarro with the doctors and medical staff of the City Health Office (CHO) headed by Dr. Arnildo Tamayo will perform the procedure with the help of some Red Cross Volunteers.
Schedule of ‘’Free Operation Tuli’’ in the 17 barangay:
One hundred (100) boys from each barangay will have a chance to benefit from the Free Operation Tuli project on a first-come-first-serve basis. For those interested, they can proceed to the POPCOM Office located at the Ground Floor of the Olongapo City Hall or they may call 222-4003 or contact their respective SK Chairman for slot reservations.
