This week, emergency medicine expert Dr. Mads Gilbert, from Norway, returned to Gaza to start the First Aid Save Lives course training for 1st-level medical students at Al Azhar University. The training will help the students acquire the skills and confidence to train citizens and workers in service institutions throughout the Gaza Strip. This life-saving training will help to increase the presence of qualified people in the basics of first aid, aiding in saving the lives of citizens in emergency situations until the ambulance can arrive.
