Firs aid

Another activity within the center is that of teaching first aid practices.

The possibility of being able to carry out this type of activity was provided to us by the Italian Association of Rescuers Section of Schio (VI) – Italy.

Thanks to this Italian association, we had the opportunity to bring Adult and Neonate dummies here to Goma in order to practice the cardio-pulmonary massage procedures.

The AIS trained the Founder Marco Rigoldi by giving him the rescuer’s diploma and the instructor’s license.

We are convinced that, in a country like Congo, where healthcare is paid and the level of education in medical terms is insufficient, first aid courses can save many people’s lives.

Our future goal is to be able to bring these courses also within the schools of Goma, in associations and to be able to involve young people and Congolese mothers above all through small free courses aimed at specific problems.
