#AppReviewTuesday – Kids Aid

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you were faced with an emergency health situation regarding your child? Would you panic? Do you know CPR or first aid? To be honest, I don’t. I do know the things to do that have been passed on from generation to generation but to be honest, I don’t know correct procedures for CPR or first aid. Luckily my husband is a health & safety officer and knows all these things but he often works far from home, so what would I do in case of an emergency? Here’s where Kids Aid comes into play.

Created by BCX (A South African-based information and communications technology company), Kids Aid provides step-by-step instructions that will guide you to ensure your child or infant is treated immediately for the most effective results.
