    Treating bumps and bruises in Rubondo

    Day 127

    Safety First!

    Everybody knows what recess at school can be like – teachers deal with a lot of scraped knees, bumps, and bruises as kids unleash all the energy they’ve been building up in class. Having a first aid kit on hand is a MUST.

    At the primary school in Rubondo, a small community in Nakivale Refugee Settlement, teachers deal with those little childhood injuries all the time.

    They told us that when it comes to safety, first aid kits would go a long way in helping ease these little bumps and bruises for the kiddos. But they didn’t have any.

    So with the help of the Rotaract Club of Nakivale, we got first aid kits into the hands of all the teachers at every primary school in Rubondo. The kids will help get bandages on those scraped knees, and they’ll also work to promote a culture of safety at school.

    Now, the teachers can help their kids be safe at school…and stop worrying about not having these supplies on hand!
