Our history

The South African First Aid League was the brainchild of Mr George Annandale Nezar, who in 1934 realized that his mother tongue, Afrikaans should be recognized as a language medium in which basic first aid skills could be taught to South Africans.

The Afrikaanse Taal- en Kultuurvereniging (ATKV), at their sixth annual Congress on the 17th of April 1935, decided to initiate their own first aid movement. The first branch of the League was founded in Bloemfontein on the 9th of August 1935. In 1954, the South African Railways recognized the organisation as an official first aid training institution for their employees.
