FIMA & IMAM collaborative mass awareness and simulation campaign
Organised exclusively by The Federation of Islamic Medical Association (FIMA), together with Islamic Medical Association of Malaysia (IMAM), this public CPR campaign has brought together people and the vital knowledge in saving lives. We wish to instill the awareness of CPR into everyone around us and make aid available even by the roadside.
Application for volunteers are now open.
About FIMA Lifesavers
For every minute of delay in initiating CPR, the chances of survival decreases.
Lifesavers aims to unite healthcare providers in educating the public about Basic Life Support skills, such as Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, Airway Resuscitation in choking victims and other more through mass simulation and expert consultations.
A study by PAROS showed only 8 from 100 cardiac arrest victims received CPR from public.
It’s a matter for us to ponder on. This responsibility is ours.
By God’s will, we will organise FIMA Lifesavers every year on September, starting this year (2019). I invite all of you to take part among the world next year to join FIMA Lifesavers 2020!
