On 17th November 2019, we had the opportunity to conduct a program in collaboration with INAM, Ar Riqab and UKM through Program Sekolah Jalanan INAM in Chow Kit, Kuala Lumpur, involving every layer of the community from teenagers, adults and even children!
This program focuses on teaching first aids such as basic life support (BLS) and choking for the community with a team of experts lead by Dr. Azlan Helmy and Dr. Aizad Azahar.
This is to ensure the public are aware on the needs to respond quickly and deal with it efficiently until help arrive!
Massive thank you to the team and especially to the participants for coming, and may the knowledge shared with you today be beneficial and a means for you to help others, InsyaAllah.
