Does CloudFlare hide real IP address on outcoming requests?

I use CloudFlare to protect my site and hide real server’s IP.

When I use ping mysite.com it shows CloudFlare IPs and it’s ok. But when my site (for example PHP script send API request to another site) does CloudFlare hide site real IP?

Thanks for clarifications.

It does not. Only responses to requests which came via the proxies will be sent via the proxies as well. Any connection your server actively opened will come from your server itself.
