In preparation for a time of necessity, medical and pharmacy student volunteers will be trained to help hospital staff in the case of a Coronavirus-induced emergency.
If there’s one thing that the Corona pandemic has taught us, it’s that being prepared, informed and equipped is key, even in the face of unpredictability. This is why the Coordination Committee of Party’s Youth Leaders and Politicians (CPYP) is launching an initiative that will provide 10,000 senior medical and pharmacy student volunteers with the tools and training to combat COVID-19, in order to anticipate potential medical emergencies.
As a platform to facilitate the link between youth in political parties and the country’s political leadership,CPYP is perfectly positioned to launch and maintain such an ambitious project. "Egyptian society, with its entities and individuals, realises its national responsibility towards its beloved country, with unity and societal solidarity, so that we can all cross with our homeland past this global crisis with the lowest cost,” a CPYP statement said.
The White Coats initiative aims to form volunteers into auxiliary medical teams to also support existing hospital staff and, on a larger scale, promote the concept of community participation, particularly amongst youth. Volunteers who graduate will even be given a certificate of appreciation.
