When an accident or emergency happens, most people do not know what to do. Many communities in Pakistan are more than an hour’s drive from the nearest clinic or healthcare facility. Knowing what to do the moment an emergency happens is a matter of life or death.
Through First Response, both men and women are given basic training lessons on how to react in an emergency ("Stop, Look, Think" principles), ethics of first aid, and five steps to basic first aid. Training events help provide opportunities to share physical and spiritual hope with whole communities.
Cost: $15 – first aid kits for a village $20 – lunch or Chai for trainees $250 – one community training event
Pray that as the training staff meet the need for first aid training, there would be many opportunities to share the Gospel and that they would be received with open hearts.
