GX visits the Red Cross Society of China in Beijing

GX Foundation was delighted to visit the headquarters of the Red Cross Society of China (RCSC) and GX board member, Mr. Sun Shuopeng in Beijing. The RCSC has been a valuable technical partner to GX, providing first-aid and CPR training to medical teams before their overseas deployment. This training is an integral part of the GX project structure and is crucial for the safety and protection of all patients and staff involved in the Cataract Blindness Elimination Project. The first RCSC training was held in June 2021 in Nanning, Guangxi, where 30 medical personnel were awarded internationally-recognised certificates. We will continue to roll out trainings in other GX partner provinces throughout 2022. GX and the RCSC will continue to collaborate on different aspects of community education, professional capacity building, and humanitarian project development.
