Red Cross Training

We completed Basic Life Saving, First Aid, and CPR training at our headquarters in Guisad, Baguio City on January 8th. We had about 20 people finish the training. Most of them are involved directly or indirectly with Bukal. Several joined us from Asia Vision Short Term Missions as well.

It was a great and demanding time. Thanks to the instructors from Philippine Red Cross. Also the food was great (Thanks Ate Flor!)
