Samaritans in Svidnik

Whilst walking through Svidnik today I came across a display by the volunteer emergency and rescue group Asosiacia Samaritanov Slovenskej Republic – as-sr.sk. As my friend runs the branch, i got roped into being a guinea pig for a young girl who taught me the latest techniques in cpr – quite embarrassing to do on a dummy in the middle of a pedestrian zone. I also had my blood pressure checked by another volunteer, and then my finger was pricked and my blood tested for diabetes, all while a stern old nun looked on. This type of group needs as much charity support as they can get as I know they fly around the world at a moment’s notice to help in disaster zones
