SAN FERNANDO CITY — Twenty-one boys, with ages ranging from 7 to 16 have availed of free circumcision from the “Operation Tuli Program 2012” of the Regional Health Service 1 (RHS1) launched at Police Regional Office 1 Headquarters here last March 24.
Police Superintendent Raymund DC Calano, RHS1 Officer-in-Charge, said the “Operation Tuli Program” was set by the Philippine National Police Health Service in Camp Crame as one way of enhancing the morale and welfare of PNP personnel through the giving of free circumcision to their dependents.
Calano said the program is open to dependents of all PNP personnel within the region regardless of unit assignments.
“We would like also our colleagues to know that our “Operation Tuli” is daily until May 15. They may submit the names of their dependents at RHS1 for scheduling. We also accept walk-in recipients; however, we are giving priority to those already scheduled,” he announced.
Calano pointed out that circumcision for boys is part of the country’s tradition, adding that it promotes good hygiene.
“Summer season is the best time to do this because the boys are still on vacation from school,” he said.#
