During my visit to Brazil in 2017 I enjoyed this beautiful village at the edge of a peninsula called Barra Grande - Marau - Bahia. Lots of beautiful beaches, amazing food and super friendly people.
I decided to visit the local Health Unit and there I met all the staff members and the only Doctor for its 3000+ residents... I could see they needed help in so many ways however all I could offer was my first aid knowledge and a large firs aid bag I had on me.
Despite all their daily challenges they were all so welcoming and kind. They showed great interest in learning some first aid because during high season they really struggle to cope with the demand and the Doctor accepted my offer to teach all the staff members first aid! He even helped by being a 'dummy' during certain demonstrations.
Yay First Aid had to adapt in order to teach there but it was a lovely challenge! The course was a success and even the receptionist said she is now ready to save a life if needed!
Yay First Aid believes everyone should learn first aid regardless of who they are!
When possible we will provide very low cost or even free first aid training! Get in touch!
