Sponsored by Jean-François LONZI, Customer service (Brive, France)
Theme: Humanitarian crises / improving preparedness
Project location: Cap Haïtien, Haiti
Organisation: Dordogne departmental civil protection association
25 trainers and a population of 2,000 people living in a rural area and far from health clinics (3 to 5 hours on foot), will be impacted by this project.
The project consists of helping to ensure the safety of disadvantaged people in Cap-Haïtien who face the threat of multiple natural disasters (earthquakes, epidemics, hurricanes, etc.).
The focal point of the project is the training of 25 trainers and group leaders who can pass on the first aid information needed to care for the local population.
In collaboration with Cap-Haïtien fire fighters, the Dordogne Departmental Civil Protection Association (ADPC24) would like to teach basic first aid, inform residents and develop an early organisation system for major crisis situations.
The Dordogne Departmental Civil Protection Association (ADPC24) provides first aid to people at sporting and other events. At the request of national and local authorities, it teaches basic first aid and provides training to local residents.
