First Aid for Kids – Session 1

Last Sunday was a super fun and interesting day for the local kids at Under The Tree library. The children had the opportunity to learn useful first aid skills, such as wound disinfection and hygiene. Mr Khoa and Ms Linh also taught the kids how to properly dress a wound! They learnt four types of wound care dressings at dorsal of the hand, forearm and elbows. It was initially hard for them. However, the children were so smart and excited dividing up into pairs and practicing alternately. Any of them who did not remember how to dress a wound was carefully guided by the volunteering teachers. In the end of the class, the kids could be as careful and cool as well-trained doctors and nurses. Well done, our kids!

We would like to state a sincere thank-you to all of the sponsors who have supported this activity of “Under the tree” – community library. Many thanks to Ms. Linh, Mr. Khoa and all our enthusiastic volunteers. Many thanks to Mr. Manh Hung Nguyen who helped to capture the beautiful moments of the class.

The second  session of “First Aid For Kids”  is planned on November.  Stay tuned!

[Announcement] First Aid For Kid

Through distinct periods of development, children, often energetic and overactive but lacking of  self-protection skills, are highly prone to accidents and injuries like abrasion, bleeding, lacerations or even bone fractures. Without knowledge of first aid and wound care, these minor injuries can lead to major consequences and big damage.

We are going to hold a series of First Aid for Kids, under the guidance of Dr Linh, to give children some practical skills to cope with real-life situations while there are no grown-ups nearby. Throughout these sessions, the kids will learn about proper wound care, wound cleaning and dressings, as well as how to create a first aid kit at home. They will have an opportunity to play doctor and nurse to engage in this educational game.
The first session will be held this Sunday, October 23rd 2016 from 9:30 am to 11am at our library. All kids are welcome. Volunteers interested in helping, please contact us.

Location:  Nguyen Cuu Phu, Tan Tao A Ward, Binh Tan District, Ho Chi Minh City.
