FriendlyCare on its constant endeavor to reach out the disadvantaged women in the Philippines went to Capas Municipality to conduct another Family Planning Mission last November 28, 2018. Capas is a first class urban municipality in the province of Tarlac which has a population of 140,202 people as of 2015.
The mission was held in Ospital Ning Capas, a government owned hospital and classified by the Department of Health as a level 1 facility.
FriendlyCare delivered Bilateral Tubal Ligation or BTL, a safe and simple surgical procedure to tie and cut the two fallopian tubes located on both
sides of the uterus. Prior to availing the procedure patients were able to make voluntary and informed choices based on accurate, balanced, and complete information provided by family planning counselor.
