By Milcah Tanimu

Femi Ogunremi, the Founder of Monitor Healthcare Limited, conducted training for 150 selected pupils in Kwara secondary schools on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The training aimed to equip children with life-saving skills, changing the narrative from people dying to surviving when faced with emergencies.

Ogunremi emphasized the importance of initiating CPR when someone collapses, guiding participants through the process, which involves calling for help, chest compressions, and rescue breathing. The training, in collaboration with the Real Foundation, marked the first of its kind, with plans to extend it to more schools across the country.

Kwara’s First Lady, Olufolake AbdulRazaq, commended the initiative, recognizing its commitment to providing the best possible care in emergencies. Participants expressed gratitude for the CPR training, highlighting its potential to save lives and pledging to spread awareness about the life-saving technique. The initiative reflects a broader effort to enhance emergency response skills among schoolchildren.
