To mark the 72th World Red Cross Day, Xianning City held a large propaganda and free medical consultation activity themed as “loving care is by your side” on May 8th.
In the activity site, Xianning Red Cross Society organized a first aid skills training, and the volunteers practiced the trauma nursing and the cadio-pulmonary resuscitation techniques, which allowed the citizens at the scene to know about and get the hang of emergency self and mutual medical aid skills. What’s more, medical staffs of the Xianning Xinqing Hospital provided a free blood pressure measurement service for the citizens and answered health consultations of citizens, meanwhile the volunteers for human organ donation have signed their names.
Through displaying propaganda exhibition boards and giving out propaganda materials in the activity, volunteers made positive efforts to spread knowledge about hemopoietic stem cell donation, voluntary blood donation, organ donation and first aid, etc, to the citizens, taking real action to uphold the Red Cross Spirit of “humanity, fraternity and devotion” and attract more and more citizens to join in the team of red cross volunteers.
As a relevant responsible person of Xianning Red Cross Society introduced that they are going to hold a “School Red Cross” plaque granting ceremony in Fushan School during the “May 8th Fraternity Week”, invite first-aid trainers to carry out an activity of “Learning First Aid Knowledge, Enhancing Awareness of Emergency and Disaster-Prevention” in a bid to improve the awareness of self and mutual medical aid of the primary and middle school students. Plus, Xianning City is also going to hold the first emergent medical care competition. In the meantime, volunteers will further carry out respecting the elderly and caring left-behind children volunteer service activities as well as Red Cross propaganda volunteer service activities in communities and rural areas.
