More than 100 AUS students attend first aid training
More than 100 students from Community Services at American University of Sharjah attended a first aid training program held on campus on September 19 and 21. The First Aid Training sessions were delivered by representatives from Emirates Red Crescent. During the two sessions, the students learned the concept of first aid and the techniques in providing basic assistance to any person suffering from illness or injury. The students also learned how first aid can be useful in preserving life, preventing complications and in promoting recovery.
"In partnership with various charitable organizations, we want to impart as much knowledge as possible to our student volunteers so that they possess skills useful in voluntary work as well as in their own personal lives. Our students felt accomplished after the training as they were empowered with knowledge and skills on how to save a life in emergency situations. The training promoted our students' sense of social responsibility, renewed their commitment to preserving life and their appreciation to health care," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students.
"The first aid training provided to AUS students by the Emirates Red Crescent and AUS Community Services was extremely beneficial and informative. In life, we do encounter emergencies from time to time and the knowledge acquired in this training would be a great help to be able to assist an ill or injured person. This is a way of giving back to the community while boosting our confidence at the same time," said Aljawhare Aljwaied, an international relations student.
The training session was organized by the Office of Student Affairs in collaboration with Emirates Red Crescent.
