Maldivian Sihhath Initiative

The Maldivian Sihhath Initiative was established by our founder Dai Rees, and has been successfully running as a sub project to the DRF for 4 years. The concept of this initiative is to deliver bespoke first aid and emergency first response training to local island communities across the Maldives. In addition to this, The MSI team also source and donate serviceable emergency medical equipment to island health centers and hospitals across the region.

To date, the team have completed 7 projects spanning 3 Atolls and over 20 islands, with approximately 500 individuals from school-children to Doctors trained in a variety of pre-hospital skills. These include Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation, Basic Life Support, recognition of medical emergencies, and extrication and management of trauma patients from challenging environments.

This project owes much of its success to the support from resorts such as Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani. These resorts, who share the same vision as MSI have facilitated travel and logistics on 5 of the projects, which demonstrates the ongoing commitment to improving the lives of local communities, that ultimately help their resort run.
