Twenty five Sikh youth in Hong Kong recently sat for the first aid examination, an extension of the community’s on-going project to get as many Sikhs to imbibe the life-saving skill.
This is the third batch of Sikhs to have undergone the First Aid Certificate Course organised by the Bhai Ghanayia Ji Education (BGJI) and the Foundation Group with the support of Hong Kong St Ambulance.
A total of 51 Sikhs undertook the examination in November and December last year.
In the December session, some teens as young as 13-years old took part in the course which introduces First Aid principles in 30 hours, practise First Aid treatment including CPR techniques, and hands-on practice for First Aid treatment at special circumstance.
The examiners in-charge in the latest examination were Francis Woo Chi Ching, Li Lol Yip and Ching Ming Kei.
In April, the Khalsa Diwan Hong Kong (Sikh Temple) and the Hong Kong Red Cross organised a blood donation campaign in the gurdwara premises.
BGJI is headed by Jesmeet Singh who played a pivotal role in the first ever Sikh youth camp in Hong Kong. [See story here].
