date_range2020-06-09

On the 29th and 30th of May, saigonchildren held a first aid training for 34 kindergarten teachers of Song Ray kindergarten, Cam My district, Dong Nai province. The event was funded as part of the Song Ray kindergarten project, which BASF and other partners helped to build in 2019.

By giving teachers basic first aid tools to use in everyday life, they are now able to identify and perform immediate assistance to children suffering from ailments such as bleeding, choking, bone fracture, suffocation, burn, drowning, etc., or even common illnesses in children such as fever or diarrhoea.

Over the two days of training, the newly qualified first-aiders were taught techniques on how to stanch and dress different types of wounds, how to perform CPR, and a chest compression or Heimlich manoeuvre. Additionally, they were trained in scenarios including broken bones, burn incidents, drownings and chemical ingestions.

The teachers were also divided into groups, in order to practice the knowledge they had learnt over the weekend and were tested and graded on both theory and practice. One of the teachers shared that because of this training, she is now much more confident in her job because if ever faced with a similar scenario, she would be ready and prepared.

By providing teachers with such valuable resources, saigonchildren has not only helped to prevent future health disasters but also relieve pressure on health services and hospitals in the area, while protecting vulnerable young children.

Song Ray kindergarten was built in 2019 with funding from BASF and other partners including Sam Chem Sphere, MKVN Chemicals, Eason Urai Paint, The Sun Chemical, Unique Coating Chemicals, VITA, BAKA, Sahaikaset Agrochemicals, Nippon Paint Vietnam, Phuong Nam Insulation, and BEI Foundation.
