The Pakistan Red Crescent Society (PRCS) on Wednesday launched the first ever national first aid policy to regulate the training for a better response to the victims during any natural or man-made disasters or even day to day life.
PRCS Chairman Dr Saeed Elahi launched the national policy.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr Saeed Elahi emphasized the important role of trained youth in the development of the country. He quoted the words of Quaid-e-Azam, the founder president of the society, “If we are to build a safer, cleaner and happier world let us start with the individual –catch him young and inculcate in him the slogan of service before self and purity in thought, word and deed. If our young people learn to befriend all, to help other people at all times, subordinate personal interest to the welfare of others, avoid violence of thought, word and action. I am confident that the attainment of universal brotherhood is possible and within our reach” (22nd December, 1947).
Saeed Elahi stressed to further improve the quality of humanitarian works at all levels (NHQ, PHQs and District Branches). He said that the aim of the policy is to organize the first aid services all over the country for their effective response during any disaster.
