First Aid Africa is a humanitarian charity working primarily in Sub-Saharan African countries to provide, and encourage access, to first aid equipment and training. In Africa the need for first aid is perhaps most obvious, yet access to even basic equipment and education remains poor. Every year, millions of infections and deaths can be avoided through a small amount of medical knowledge and resources.
We look for volunteers who are willing to join us on one of our expeditions in the summer months to teach basic first aid skills in schools, community groups, orphanages and hospitals. No previous knowledge of first aid is necessary as all training is provided.
