Huis, tuin en keuken ‘dokters’ / Impression of a First Aid teaching at a local primary school

(for english, scroll down)

Kennis overdragen is, naast het verlenen van medische zorg in de community, een belangrijk onderdeel van ons project werk, en dus bezochten we vorige week de basisschool in Chilaweni, één van de dorpjes waar we 2 keer per maand een kliniek houden.
Bij binnenkomst werden we heel enthousiast onthaald door de leerlingen van klas 8. De leeftijd varieerde van 14-17 jaar. Zo’n 2 uur lang mochten we een EHBO les verzorgen voor 55 leerlingen en 15 leraren en leraressen. De leerlingen waren erg enthousiast en deden leuk mee. Na de les, was het tijd voor een toets om te kijken of ze allemaal wel echt opgelet hadden. Maar ja dan is een toets in het engels natuurlijk wel extra moeilijk. Gelukkig hadden we genoeg hulp van de leraren, dus werden de vragen voor de leerlingen vertaald in het Chichewa. Met een broodje en een glas limonade, konden de leerlingen even relaxen, voordat het tijd was om het geleerde in praktijk te brengen. Het gebruik van een mitella bleek niet altijd even makkelijk, maar na afloop mochten we iedereen feliciteren en kreeg iedereen een EHBO pakket mee naar huis.
Het was erg leuk om deze jonge studenten EHBO kennis bij te brengen en zo bij te dragen aan de toekomst van deze jonge generatie. Op deze manier dragen we ook bij de verbetering van de gezondheid in de community. Dit dorp ligt zo’n 4 uur lopen vanaf het dichtstbijzijnde ziekenhuis, dus dan is EHBO heel belangrijk. Naast de EHBO lessen aan de leerlingen hebben we de afgelopen maanden ook EHBO lessen verzorgd voor de ouders en verzorgers in het dorp Chilaweni en stadsdeel Machinjiri.

Dankzij de gedoneerde EHBO pakketten vanuit NL worden de lessen natuurlijk wel extra leuk.

An important part of our work in the community is teaching. Apart from teaching the parents/caregivers in the community, teaching the youth is also very important. Last month we visited the std 8 class of the Primary School in Chilaweni, one of the communities we serve.

On arrival the class greeted us very enthusiastically. The age varies 14-17 year. For about 2 hours we entertained the 55 students and 15 teachers with our First Aid teaching. The students were very eager to learn, and participated greatly. After the teaching, it was time for a little written test. With some squash and a bun, the kids went outside to relax, before we called them in for a practical test to see if they fully understood and if it was save to send them all home with a First Aid package.  All the students (some with some extra practice) successfully passed!

It was such joy to teach these young students. By teaching them, we invested in the general health in the community and in the future generation. This village is about 4hrs walk from the nearest health care facility, with no other mode of transport being available. Therefore knowledge and resources for First Aid are very important for this community.

We used donated sun- and waterproof First Aid Packs that are donated to us from the Netherlands. What a blessing!
