First aid and Survival skills have long been educated in the curriculum, companies and community of developed countries.
However, most of Vietnamese are not educated with this vital knowledge and skills. Most victims are not properly rescued or not given first aid before being sent to hospitals, causing a very high mortality rate in the country, and thus big loss, suffering and burden for families and the whole society.
Our Sơ Cấp Cứu (First Aid Helper) mobile app project aims to help untrained Vietnamese people improve survivability in dangerous situations.
The app is advised by Mr. Tony Coffey, an operational Emergency Paramedic in Sydney, Australia.
In the last 3 years, Mr. Tony has been traveling frequently to Vietnam to deliver First Aid training for Vietnamese, especially the young students. At the same time he is training a community of local volunteer first aiders who will then be provided with further trainings to be SSVN Local First Aid Trainers who help to spread first aid awareness and skills to more people.
