STH activities - training in FIRST AID to volunteers from CHIBO/PASHYOR villages

For the benefit of those who do not follow the blog regularly - CHIBO/PASHYOR are villages on the western face of the Kalimpong ridge and they have had a long history of treacherous landslides. With the monsoons just around the corner SaveTheHills (STH) is working on a CBDRM program there on a trial basis.
In so doing we organized basic first aid training to 11 young men and women of the villages at the Military Hospital in Kalimpong in the first week of Mar2010.
We also hope to provide them with some first aid equipment before the monsoons start.

STH would like to thank the Army Authorities and officers / personnel of the Military Hospital who went out of their way to help us with the training.
