Noveleta RHU resumes free circumcision

Trece Martires, Cavite (PIA) — More than two years into the CoVid-19 pandemic, the Noveleta Rural Health Unit resumes the conduct of ‘Oplan Manhood’ for the free circumcision of young boys in the locality on Tuesday, April 5.

This program had been a yearly activity prior to the pandemic and was halted due to strict quarantine protocols. 

A total of 40 young boys who pre-registered to avail the free circumcision underwent the procedure done at the Noveleta Vaccination Hub in Primark Town Center, Barangay Magdiwang.

The boys were given free antibiotics and pain reliever medication for after procedure care. 

According to Noveleta Medical Officer, Dr. Ma. Hilda Bucu, ‘Oplan Manhood’ will be implemented this summer to address the requests from parents of young boys due for circumcision. 

Mayor Dino Reyes-Chua immediately proposed the conduct of the activity and declared every Tuesday of April 2022 (April 5, 12,19 and 26) as ‘Free Tuli Day.’

“Since we have not had ‘Oplan Manhood’ in our town for almost 2 years due to strict quarantine guidelines brought about by the CoVid-19 pandemic, and with relaxed protocols under Alert Level 1, we are resuming this program with full compliance with the minimum health standards mandated by the government,” Mayor Chua said. 

Dr. Bucu announced that those who are interested to avail of the free circumcision should register at the Noveleta Lying-in Center located at the municipal hall grounds or may contact the RHU office. (Ruel Francisco/with reports from Dennis Abrina)
