Sri Lanka Red Cross calls for expansion of life-saving skills for everyone, everywhere.

For World First Aid Day, the Sri Lanka Red Cross Society (SLRCS) along with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is calling on communities island-wide to be equipped with life-saving skills, be it in times of everyday crises, disasters or conflicts. Local people save 90 per cent of lives in an emergency. In the most critical of times, bystanders are often the first to act before a professional arrives.
