TU launches the Little Paramedic Initiative at 7 schools to explain the principles of first aid to young pupils

TU Volunteerism Unit and the Be Healthy Team launched the Little Paramedic initiative at 7 schools and kindergartens. 51 team members participated in the initiative to explain the principles of first aid to little graders and preschoolers (of both sexes) in an interactive and understandable manner, teaching them how to respond quickly in serious situations. A theoretical lecture was given about first aid. Then the first aid kit contents were explained, and practical applications on how to deal with suffocation, sunstrokes, and fractures were provided to 307 pupils. The volunteer hours totaled 146.
