First Aid in Santa María - Guatemala

Recently we asked the local "Bomberos Voluntarios", or local firemen and general emergency service, to pay a visit to our school in Santa María to give the kids and volunteers a demonstration of basic First Aid.

They spent the whole afternoon showing what to do in various emergencies and what to use as replacements for splints and bandages if there were none at hand, using our brave kids as examples!

With all our kids living and working in dangerous environments, it is paramount that they know what to do in an emergency, and we will be repeating this demonstration regularly! Cheers Bomberos!
