Operation Tuli

April 12, 2015: The Community Development Office (CDO), in cooperation and coordination with the College of Nursing and with the support and participation of the Philippine Army doctors, and the adopted barangays. This project sought not only to raise community awareness on health, but also to decrease risks of urinary tract infections, STD’s and penile cancer through circumcision and help some parents who cannot afford to have their children circumcised by a doctor. The activity started at 8:00 am and the children came with their parents. After registration, the parents signed the consent forms for the children to undergo the medical procedure. There were six (6) minor surgery set-ups at the JRU mini hospital which were manned by six medical doctors. The NHS faculty with the Dean, assisted the procedure. The operations went smoothly with some of the children asking for their parents to be present by their sides. A total of twenty six children were operated on and were provided medications both for pain relief and antibiotics.
