We believe that first aid can be life saving, and that good first aid training is central to this, but there is more than one way to save a life. We now donate to Malaria No More making every delegate that attends our First Aid in Remote Locations course a life saver. So whilst they are learning the skills to save a life, we feel that they are actually saving the life of someone in sub-saharan Africa at the same time.
The work of charities such as Malaria no More is an essential part of the fight against this deadly disease. On our First Aid in Remote Locations courses the delegates are learning and practicing how to deal with catastrophic wounds, but also how to care for a sick colleague, so it’s in keeping that we are so concerned about Malaria.
On the latest course run in the first week of May, our donation allowed testing and treatment to be offered to 100 people, so with 11 delegates on the course that works out at just under 10 lives saved each! Not bad going, especially when you add on the number of times they saved our “casualties” on their #trainforreal first aid training. “Calamity Claire” and “Suffering Sam” [our live role players] had a total of 14 accidents across the course.
