First aid training in Kalisz
CPR for Schools educational programme is based on a very simple, yet very effective premise: primary school teachers become first aid instructors for their pupils. This way first aid knowledge is becoming universally available to primary school children and up to date, nearly 3 million children have learned CPR and the basics of first aid. This time our instructors are demonstrating the elements of the CPR for Schools programme to the primary school teachers from Kalisz.
The two-day CPR and first aid course is free and all teaching aids and materials such as handbooks and exercise books, manikins and DVDs are free. What is more, teachers who are actively participating in the CPR for Schools educational initiative can request new materials for their students.
Between 2013 and 2017 he Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation donated equipment for over PLN 99 000 000 in aid of one of the most neglected and underfunded branches of medicine - geriatrics. Today, as we celebrate the International Day of Older Persons we look back on the ways in which we supported the elderly patients.
