“In my career before as a doctor I worked in first aid for several years then I found my way into SARC. In the beginning I involved in rescuing injured people to take them to the hospital and in the preservation of their health, because of my faith in the necessity of this intervention as humanitarian and moral duty.
I’ll tell you about a first aid story I saw right before my eyes.
To begin with I would like to say I pray for the girl and hope she is now in good health.
I was in the market and suddenly I heard screaming next to a restaurant, a mother screaming and calling for help, her daughter was choking on some food.
Many people approached the child, some were observing and praying for the child, others trying to aid her but the wrong way – the right way was with first aid.
When I saw the scene I stood still for second & imagined the girl was my daughter.
Of course I could not really feel what it was like for her mother who was shocked, as well as the father, who was stronger until the girl started to lose consciousness, then he shouted “my daughter … my daughter!“ I intervened quickly to help them perform the Heimlich manoeuver.
We continued to help the child while calling for an ambulance, but we knew her case could not wait until an ambulance arrived, which could take time across the crowded streets. We got the food out of the girl and she returned to her normal healthy state – this saved her life and gave hope back to her parents.”
