St. Paul’s University went the extra mile to provide allow us to experience a clinic focusing on prenatal care and pediatric circumcisions. This was a medical mission established for the school, providing an opportunity for male community members between the ages of 9 and 14 to receive free circumcisions. Circumcisions are recommended for all males in the Philippines in order to prevent infections from swimming in contaminated water supplies, improve hygiene, and decrease the prevalence of sexually transmitted infections.
