Annually, the society organizes first aid competition in line with the second pillar of the society’s four-part youth Program of protecting life and health of the most vulnerable. First Aid Competitions are a well-known way of assisting First Aiders to develop and practice their skills. The aim of the competitions is to simulate “Real Life experience through Scenario Based approaches so as to test the First Aider’s ability to cope and assist during Emergencies.”
The theme for this year’s competition is “First Aid and Excluded People.” As per the World First Aid Day Theme.
The theme is meant to promote the participation and inclusion of the marginalized, neglected or excluded groups. Excluded groups vary from regions to regions: people with disabilities, the aged, homeless people, prisoners, refugees and other immigrants, people living with HIV or other diseases etc.
