Operation Tuli celebrated its 17th year. The Sports & Community Relations committee led by its chairman Eldred Layam, liaison officer Colin Diano, members Edjun Pilapil & Rewin Cordero and observer Delfin Burgos spearheaded on April 12, 2014 Operation Tuli 2014. It was conducted in the clinic of TMX CB plant.
Doctors Benjamin Auguis, Mirasol Antolihao and Rhodora Lafradez administered the operation. They were ably assisted by our TMX CB head nurse Jovelyn Suficiencia and her pool of efficient nurses namely April Rose Padogdog, Sheila Udang, Christine Badiola, Maria Theresa Santos and Virgilio Doliguez Jr. TMX employees Rico Lim and Porperia Soroño also aided in the preparation.
Tuli, a Filipino rite of male circumcision is long been a historical tradition and is considered a rite of passage. Indeed, 49 kids ages 7 -11 years old who were dependents of the TMX Cooperative members became little men on said day. Amidst cries, excitement and fear, the kids were treated to movies while waiting for their turn.
