Wow what productive months!  We successfully provided 3 free 3-hours online Paediatric 1st Aid Training!  It was awesome! Our participants in each session were over 50 people mostly from Africa and UK, Canada and the USA.

We had paediatricians, nurse and other medical professionals support each session to help understand the current pandemic we are facing with Covid-19.

Our 1st aid sessions provided methods on how to save a child's and even adults life using safe methods that has been adapted due to the coronavirus.

The feedback was great and participants even took our assessments to ensure they were fully competent on what life saving skills they have just acquired! Next few sessions are for a small fee.

We are now officially PPE Wholesalers as an incentive to raise money for our cause!  We service several governments around the world with the backing of great solid top ranked partnership globally.  

As we continue to provide these fund raising initiative, we keep our eyes on the prize in order to fund the building of our first children's wellness clinic in Eastern Nigeria.  Our aim to build a hospital as the ultimate goal but in the interim we have partnered with Mobilhealth who will provide our clinics with virtual medical services!  

More about this great partnership to come!  So we will continue to keep up the good work and get this initiative off the ground!

OFF AGAIN! Paediatric 1st aid training- APRIL 2020

School teacher all trained I
School teacher all trained I

Here we go again!! We are still on the road to providing at least 100 class trainings.  This is the next batch of 1st aid training we will soon deliver. We are planning to train at least 400 people in April.  This will make us a total of 650 adults and children trained and qualified to save lives using First aid methods. 

What is Paediatric 1st Aid training?

This training concentrates solely on the child and infant age groups. This is useful to full time childcare workers such as teachers, childminders, nannies, nursery staff and children themselves…from 8 years up! Standard paediatric courses will cover how to manage an ill or injured child / infant in the event of an emergency. 

The training covers key essentials that will give you our trained First aiders to ability where possible to PERSERVE life, ALLIVATE suffering, PREVENT the condition from worsening and PROMOTE recovery! 

This Paediatric First Aid course has been designed by a qualified first-aider to help parents, carers, teachers, and anyone else who lives or works with children, learn the basics of first aid so that they can react appropriately in an emergency situation. Children can be taught as well! Children are great at remember things!

In April we hope to carry out 6 classes with a total of about 400 people to train...watch this space for reports of this success!

WE DID IT! OUR FIRST BIG BANG INITIATIVE!!

Trained as young as 7 years old

Paediatric 1st Aid training! We trained over 200 people in 3 days! It was excited and fulfilling! Educating people to save lives is the ultimate way forward! In eastern Nigeria, where hospitals and other medical facilities are of general poor quality and/or lack of knowledge in medical care, this training will provide some assistance to prolonging the lives of the indigenes and prevent unnecessary death. It is a priceless opportunity!

We delivered this training to several schools and businesses. Children as young as 7 years old attended the training. Unexpectedly we had other businesses like factory workers, rental car companies, shopping mall staff attend the training, it was truly amazing how everybody is hungry for knowledge and thinking of ways to help themselves.

As a recap, this training was designed to teach parents, carers, teachers, and anyone else who encounters people and children in the jobs every day. They learnt the basics of first aid so that they can react appropriately in an emergency.

In the Paediatric First Aid training course we covered the following:

The Primary Survey

This outlines why knowledge of first aid is so important, details the essential items for a first aid kit, and explains the steps of the primary survey

• The aim of first aid

• Your first aid box

• The primary survey: danger, response, airway and breathing

The Secondary Survey

This outlines how to put children and infant casualties into the recovery position.

• Steps of the secondary survey

• When to go to the hospital

• The recovery position

• The recovery position for infants • Unconscious casualties

• Choking

• Wounds and bleeding • Shock


Resuscitation (CPR) for Adults, Children and Infants

This module teaches how to administer CPR chest compressions and rescue breaths to both child and infant casualties. The module also explains the benefits of AEDs.

• Administering CPR to children • Administering CPR to infants • Stopping CPR

• Defibrillators (AEDs) - sample demonstration ( as this does not exist for the public in this area)

• Extra things to consider


Secondary Illnesses and Conditions

This module details some of the illnesses and conditions that children may live with on a daily basis, such as epilepsy and allergies, and explains how to recognise the symptoms and respond in an emergency situation.

• Allergic reactions and anaphylaxis • Bites and stings

• Epilepsy

• High temperatures

• Shock (due to loss of blood)

Further Secondary Illnesses and Conditions

This section looks at some more common conditions, as well as a few rare illnesses, and helps learners understand how to recognise and respond to them.

• Hypothermia

• Drowning

 

We provided this training at no cost to our local partners like other NGO's that look after special children. Private primary and secondary schools and private businesses paid a fee which covered a bit of our expense and our hope is that in the next trainings, the cost will cover all our expenses and the remaining profit to go towards building of the first phase of our delivery -  ‘Children's Wellness Center’. Also, we are hoping for sponsorships to train community and local schools and people who can not afford to attend this training, like fishermen and farmers.

Next year 2020 we are aiming to deliver 100 training session to train 10,000 people and hopefully raise over £30k to go towards a full launch of the VSCWC Children's Wellness Center! Thank you for your donations and time! For more information please contact us! Exciting times!
