Pediatric 1st aiders!

We are almost ready for our first Children's Wellness event, this October! Finally with all the odds, we completed the Paediatric 1st Aid training! We will start with educating people on how to save lives…

We will deliver this training to at least 20 primary schools in the local area - each school is expected to provide representatives which will be a mixture of Teachers and primary school children.  Including our partner orphanages, Special needs homes and parents. We are engaging the local governement to ensure we comply to local laws and regulations.

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!

The course covers how to identify and respond to incidents, including how to treat minor injuries, put a child or infant in the recovery position and administer CPR to a child or infant casualty.

Getting ready to go!

We have been using the months to prepare for our first big awareness event! In May we will do the Children’s Wellness event by providing eye care and oral hygiene/treatment where needed.

Eye Care - we plan to work with optometrist specialists to conduct eye test, give out prescribed glasses and eye drops where necessary for children up to 12 years old.

Oral hygiene and treatments where necessary.  As we are working with Smiletrain, if we encounter any Cleft lip children, Smiletrain will treat the cases.  We have dentist and other oral hygiene specialist to provide basic checks and education to children and their parents on maintaining a healthy oral life style. Also, we will provide free toothpaste and brushes to encourage children to always brush their teeth everyday.

Thank you for your continued support and please keep following our progress as we take baby steps to achieve our goal.
