First Aid Course for Masiphumelele Community

By 5 years ago
Categories Cape Town

We’ve just run our very first community CPR and First Aid course with some of our Project Partners in Masiphumelele.  To be honest, I was quite apprehensive about it beforehand.  Not only is it the first time we have done this course with local community members but it is the first time I have run this course at all.  I have massively increased respect for these people. Not only can they casually and cheerfully put up with hardships that we would never cope with in our day to day lives, but they can learn new and complex skills in a totally foreign language.  There were a few hiccups and misunderstandings along the way but that was to be expected.  We had a lot of laughs too.  I also have to commend the participants for some excellent handling of some very tricky situations, and some Oscar level acting in the role plays.
