Three new defibrillators installed in Coín thanks to ‘Touch of Kindness’ campaign

A CAMPAIGN by a local real estate company has seen life saving equipment installed at local schools and charities. 

Coín has received three new defibrillators and life saving training thanks to a campaign by Mediterranean Homes. 

The latest device was installed at Huertas Viejas Primary School on November 27.

Members of staff also received life saving training to ‘give the youngest members of our community and their educators the protection they deserve’. 

It comes just days after Afacol, a local Alzheimer’s association, received a new defibrillator, also serving two other charitable organisations located in the same building. 

Installed on November 20, Mediterranean Homes provided staff with in depth training on how to use the device. 

The campaign began in March this year, when Mediterranean Homes installed one of the devices at Colegio Nuestra Señora de Lourdes, also giving staff life saving training. 

The defibrillators, known as AEDs, or Automated External Defibrillators, can help to save lives in the event of a heart attack. 

According to Kelly Summerell, CEO of Mediterranean Homes: “Sudden cardiac arrests can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time.

“Having an AED on-site significantly increases the chances of saving lives during these critical moments. We believe It’s a small investment that yields immeasurable returns in the form of community safety and well-being.” 

The real estate company, which serves the inland Costa del Sol, is now urging businesses to contribute and collaborate in their mission to ‘create a community fortified against medical emergencies, one heartbeat at a time.’
