February has been a first aid month here in Leribe. We started of with a first aid training for the new youth volunteers in Hlotse, and continued with a first aid day at the Baylor clinic for the Teen Club, conducted by three youth volunteers. This weekend we’re going to Hanjane branch to do a first aid training for the youth volunteers there.
We’re proud of our volunteers that all passed their first aid exams, and are especially impressed with the ones that facilitated at the Baylor clinic, for a 100 teenagers. First aid is an important skill for everyone in Lesotho to have, since the emergency respons time can be up to several hours and the nearest hospital/clinic can be far away, especially in the more rural areas.
