First Aid knowledge is invaluable for all of us, as individuals and as well as a community. It enables us to assist people in place of an accident or an emergency, until help arrives. First Aid skills may needed be applied at home, at the workplace or in public locations in a time we are totally not expecting. Therefore, the more First Aid certified people there are in a community, the safer that community becomes.
As we are gathered through Leo Club of University of Moratuwa, to serve the community, we all have a responsibility to keep people aware of various such situations and how to react on them. That’s why, UoM Leos organized Heal All, emergency first aid workshop, to give practical knowledge and experience in first aid and about how to response in emergency situations. The project was held on 20 th March 2019 at University of Moratuwa Old Gym premises. It was scheduled to begin at 8.30 a.m. in the morning and it was held throughout the day. This program was conducted by three brothers from Richmond College Past First Aid Association. Nearly 70 students from University of Moratuwa and Sri Lanka Technical College participated in this project and made the day a success.
