Students at Mwaya and Matete Primary Schools have been taking part in First Aid lessons with volunteer Tom. An Italian nurse working in the UK, Tom has been volunteering with us in Malawi at one of the local rural clinics. During his free afternoons, he has been running interactive first aid training and will soon be working with the students at Kapanda Secondary School.

He said, “I think most of the students really like the lessons as I try to make it more dynamic by involving the students with the Annie CPR dolls and making them try the manoeuvers.”
