Chandigarh, December 30

A training session on ‘First Aid and Handling Emergency’ was organised during an NSS camp in Panjab University. 

Dr Rakesh Khullar, Chief Surgeon at the BG Health Centre, PU, highlighted the importance of giving first aid to the injured or infected patients. This was followed by practical demonstration of various life-saving procedures, which if correctly used in emergency situations, can be helpful in preventing loss of life or major health damage. The NSS volunteers enjoyed the interactive and humorous session. 

Sandeep from Open Eyes Foundation (NGO) interacted with NSS volunteers about a project on donating old books. He said they collected old and new books and shared them with the needy students in various schools and colleges of Chandigarh and nearby areas. At present, they have a stock of more than 4,200 books.
