President of Bandage International, Darryl Chickness, talks about the organizations mission.
Bandage International members recently returned from Belize, Central America on Dec 12th from another successful mission. Upon returning we were immediately notified from our friends in Belize of 2 major incidents that we had a direct impact on. In one incident a twin prop water craft drove over a swimmer and caused serious injury to the patient. There was a staff member close by that actually took part in our training course a few days before that provided care for this patient and transported the patient to a medical clinic a few miles away!
In the second incident a 7 year old child was pulled from a pool and successfully resuscitated by a patrol officer that had taken our course just 24hrs prior. I attached the link for this as per the local Belize Newspaper reported.
