A collaborative initiative between USAID and WHO conducted an educational event aimed at promoting the acquisition of CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) skills.
In the event of a sudden cardiac arrest, CPR stands as one of the initial and paramount measures to potentially save a life.
Every minute that elapses without the administration of CPR reduces the likelihood of survival by 10-15%. The prompt administration of CPR can enhance the chances of survival by two to three times.
Performing CPR does not require one to be a medical professional; anyone can acquire and learn these life-saving skills. An educational event and training session were conducted on May 6, 2023, at the shopping center with the organizational support of "Park Bulvar" shopping mall with the objective to raise public awareness about the significance of CPR and to provide participants with hands-on instruction in performing chest compressions.
