The training was also a supplement to the Master Guides who attended their Master Guide nightly trainings. “The first aid training is also a requirement for the Master Guides,” said MM Youth Director, Pastor Micah Akui. “and it’s a privilege for most of them.” He added.
The first batch of trainees consists of more than 40 people with the Master Guides making up the majority of the population. The second batch of trainees was made up mostly of pastors and ministers, starting on Thursday, 26th and ended on Sunday 29th April.
