The Binirayan Cut

MAY 27, 2015

Article by: Charles Jebb Juanitas

inirayan literally means
"where they sailed to".
Indeed,
we
“sailed"
through
the
17
municipalities of the province of
Antique.
The event has gone full circle as
the fourth and final week seals the end
of this seahorse-shaped province when
it started 3 weeks ago from north as it
goes southward, traversing the land
where the mountains literally meet the
sea.
Circumcision
is
commonly
performed on school-age boys in most
parts of the country, and in the
province of Antique, Philippines, it is a
tradition the Antiqueño's continually
practice as a symbol of male maturity
and is ritualistically considered a rite
of passage to manhood.
Adding 460 individuals from the
towns of Tobias Fronier (Dao) and
Anini-y with 244 and 216 respectively,
the Province-wide free Tuli Program
commences in the southmost tip of the
province, Anini-y, May 26, 2015 with a
grand total of 3,687 successfully
circumcised individuals.
With the last leg of the provincewide event, the team of volunteers
headed by Junior Lady Asclepian Ma.
Celine N. Villo is composed of Jayrick

F. Aguirre and Aizlynn Anne J.
Robledo from Batch 37; William Matthew T. Suaboksan, Louise Cecile S.
Del Rosario, Jhon Philip P. Fuego,
Peterson P. Chang and Charles Jebb
B. Juanitas (Batch 38); and Mary
Khristy Joy L. Tallador, Xyra Angelie
M. Sanchez, Judd Elixir L. Berano and
Mignonette
S.
Delgado
from
WVSU-COM Class 2017 (Excelsior).
"Be able to learn new things and to
be of service to the Antiqueño's makes
the experience worthwhile.", said
William Matthew T. Suaboksan who
was present in the surgical missions
in all 17 municipalities of the
province catered by the program.
Kids
from
various
ages
throughout the province participated
and availed of the free circumcision
services as well as post-operative
medications such as antibiotics and
analgesics which were provided. The
said event was made possible
through the efforts of the Antique
Provincial
Government
in
cooperation with the following
agencies: Office of the Governor,
Department of Health – Region VI,
Provincial Health Office headed by
Dr. Ric Noel A. Naciongayo, PHO II
(Batch 10), Municipal and District
Hospitals, Local Government Unit

and Municipal Health Offices of The 17
municipalities catered by the program,
Personnel from the 31st Division of the
Philippine Army, and the Order of
Asclepius.
Tuli season may near it's finale for
this summer, but circumcision as part
of our culture is far from done and will
continue in the years to come.
Sure enough next generations of
Asclepians will be part of the journey
of those man-to-be as they claim
manhood the Filipino way. Kruhay! #
