In recognition of the growing concerns that too few today are adept at the use of basic first aid techniques, particularly from BME communities, Scottish Ahlul Bayt Society‘s Youth Committee arranged a training session to equip members with essential first aid skills. The event came to fruition through our association with the Scottish Ambulance Service, and was delivered by the British Heart Foundation – Scotland by way of their Heart Start Training Programme. It is important that we highlight this issue which is ever pertinent to our communities, and ignite a useful conversation encouraging others to follow suit in acquiring the capability to save lives.
