Medical Mission for Free Circumcision for Boys at Fourth Estate Subdivision


Last Sunday, May 14, 2022, the Blessed Candida Maria Foundation officers and members organized a free Medical Mission at the Fourth Estate Subdivision, Paranaque. This area has been the beneficiary of the reach-out and extension programs of Manresa School for many years.


After two years into the pandemic,  BCMF resumed its program of attending to the medical needs of people who are considered at the fringe of our society by way of offering free circumcision for boys from 10 – 16 years old. Around 134 boys, accompanied by their parents and/or guardians lined up early at the St. Candida Pastoral Center as recipients of this free circumcision event.
