The given project curtails the need and importance of First Aid (Prathimik Upchar) in cases where doctor is not available immediately. In order to protect ourselves from any hazardous circumstances, one should keep a First Aid Box to accessible places.
The Encyclopedia Britannica describes First Aid as “measure to be taken immediately after an accident not with an idea to cure but in order to prevent further harm being done.” It uses the available human and material resources at the site of the accident to provide initial care to the victim of injury or sudden illness until more advanced care is provided.
