NSRI needs donations for CPR dolls to keep teaching children water safety

Written by: Lengwadishang Ramphele

The National Sea Rescue Institute is in need of CPR "dummies" or dolls to carry out water safety for children and adults.

Each doll costs just under R5000, meaning it needs to raise R200 000.

NSRI CEO Dr Cleeve Robertson says the dummies play an essential part in teaching small children how to perform CPR correctly.

Where these children had to perform CPR in real life experiences and performed well, he says.

In order to do the training we need the tool and that tool is a CPR manikin used to teach them chest compression.
