Mass First Aid Training and a Successful Blood Drive

The Belize Red Cross - San Pedro Branch (SPBRC) is proud to announce that training is underway for the staff of Mahogany Bay Village. Soon 30 newly qualified First Responders will be available to assist staff, visitors of the village and the community at large. The first 10 were trained Tues Nov 22nd, the second group is scheduled for December 6th and the third group soon after. All will be trained in First Aid, CPR and AED utilization.

San Pedro Red Cross has been providing First Aid training to all the citizens, organizations and businesses of San Pedro since November 2013 for a nominal fee. This year our certified instructors were able to train many teachers, firefighters and youths of the island due to the generous contributions from sponsors.

Hand in hand with First Aid the San Pedro Branch also holds quarterly blood drives.

On Saturday, Nov. 26th, The Red Cross held their final blood drive for 2016 at the Polyclinic. They collected a total of 16 pints of precious blood, enough to save 48 lives. In tandem with the blood drive, they held a Dollar Drive & collected $205 worth of donations from the generous Ambergris Caye community.

San Pedro Red Cross thanks our sponsors who helped make this possible: Tropic Air, Brooklyn Bros. Bagel Shop, Mermaid store. A special thank you to Dr Otto Rodrigues Polyclinic for a full day use of the clinic.

SPBRC would also like to thank Belize Blood Bank and all volunteers that came out to help.

The next blood drive will be held at the Polyclinic on Saturday, February 25th, 2017. Please note that if you are thinking of giving blood, the experience is a very painless one. There is rarely a line & there are always yummy refreshments waiting for you after you donate. Please think R E D before you donate~ get plenty of Rest, Eat a healthy meal, & Drink plenty of fluids.

San Pedro Red Cross is always looking for volunteers and willing to share information on the work we are doing in the community. If you would like to know more about what we do and how you can become involved, please attend one of our General Meetings held at Crazy Canucks on the last Friday of every month, starting at 6:00.

If you would like to find out how you or your staff can participate in becoming First Aid / CPR / AED certified, or if you'd like more information about donating blood, please contact us at [email protected]
