Indigenous Community Members Earn Red Cross Certificates
In partnership with the Cambodian Red Cross (CRC), World Hope International provided a two-day training on COVID-19 Prevention and First Aid Training in Mondulkiri Province, home of the indigenous Bunong and the heart of several World Hope projects.
She shared some reflections from the experience with us…
“I am very interested in learning this lesson on First Aid from Cambodian Red Cross. It made me learn a lot of ways to provide interventions to help people in different needs. I am so happy that they were able to share these skills to me.”
World Hope periodically collaborates with the Red Cross on these trainings to ensure all staff and partners complete a 2 day First Aid Certification. With funding for the training provided to World Hope through a private foundation and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), the trainings provide staff, partners, and community members like Mrs. Bopha with a basic work and life skill – and an official Red Cross Certificate.
The Red Cross has added COVID-19 risk management to the curriculum.
A mother of two young girls herself in addition to holding a membership in the ICC, she shared that “I am so happy to bring this knowledge to help the people in my community.”
Mrs Bopha believes that these capacity-building lessons will benefit her as well as protect herself in times of need to help others – which is exactly the desired outcome in hosting the periodic trainings.
