First Aid Africa

We sponsored targeted ads with reliable evidence-based information on COVID-19, which reached over 1.3m people. We worked with international partners and local Zambian businesses to raise over $100,000 to purchase urgent items in the first weeks of the pandemic, including vital PPE for frontline health workers and Oxygen concentrators for treatment centers.

Working with the Ministry of Health, we provided basic emergency care training, accredited by the WHO, to 80 Nurses working in Lusaka, and distributed essential equipment like accurate pulse Oxymeters and high-concentration oxygen masks, to hospitals across the country.

With private-sector restaurants, we distributed over 3000 free meals for frontline health workers and provided a platform online for the public to thank our medics through personal messages.
