Over two days, our CPR instructors will train 76 teachers from 41 schools. Thirteen new schools will join our educational initiative.
Girl, aged 10, saves newborn baby brother!
Last week a primary school pupil not only became a big sister - she became a superhero! When the girl's mum went into premature labour, she knew exactly what she needed to do. The little hero knew whom to call for help and was able to provide emergency dispatchers with all details. When her brother was born, she knew how to act and how to provide support to both - her mum and her newborn sibling.
The little girl's composure is described as nothing short of heroic by medical staff and police officers. The girl not only called for help - she also made sure that her newborn brother was breathing. All this before the ambulance arrived at the scene! Her actions are the best proof that teaching basics of first aid at very early age brings fantastic effects!
At the moment, both the new mum and baby are healthy and heir condition is monitored by doctors, who do not hide their admiration for the little girl's behaviour in a critical situation.
Come December all payments made in aid of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity will go towards the objective of the 28th Grand Finale fundraiser. It means that you can already make your first donation and help us buy medical equipment for children's hospitals across the country.
Wondering how much we raised since the first Grand Finale in 1993?
