Getting First Aid providers to Nepal to train locals

A team of professional first aid instructors are hoping to head over to Nepal to train approximately 100 new first aiders. Helping to construct three rescue teams and enable them to be prepared in case of further disasters such as the large earthquake that created a large amount of devastation earlier in 2015. 

Travelling to Nepal in April 2016 - four instructors will be instrumental in setting up a rescue team in the capital Kathmandu as well as the North West and North East regions most affected by natural disasters. These teams will include locals including nepalese scouters eager to volunteer. 

Check out the First Aid for Nepal Blog and Facebook page for updates and to see if you can help out.
