SLF hands over very first defibrillator
09-11-2018, Vlissingen

The Saving Lives Foundation gave away its very first defibrillator on Friday 9 November. The DefiSign Life AED was presented by Chairman Pieter Joziasse, to the tennis club LTC Dos. In the Netherlands. This tennis club is situated in a wooded area on the beach, where there are alot of sports venues and many tourists. The defibrillator will be placed on the outside fence of the tennis club, ensuring that it is always accessible to everyone. We think that the defibrillator has been given a good place, allowing many more people access to the device. Of course we always hope that the device does not have to be used in the future.

Establishment of the Saving Lives Foundation
07-03-2018, Vlissingen

The Saving Lives Foundation is officially established at Sauer and Oonk Solicitors.

The Saving Lives Foundation is the idea of Medisol BV, but operates entirely independently from Medisol. Naturally Medisol plays a powerful role in supporting the ambitions of the Saving Lives Foundation, but when it comes to the ideology, concrete ideas, planning and implementation of the Saving Lives Foundation, it is a completely independent organisation.

Doel van de Foundation is om de kans op overleving bij een hartstilstand in Europa zo groot mogelijk te maken. Dit doen wij door het stimuleren van preventieve gezondheidsmaatregelen, het stimuleren van wetenschappelijk onderzoek naar oorzaken van een hartstilstand, het aanmoedigen van opleidingen en trainingen op het gebied van reanimatie en het promoten van de aanschaf en het gebruik van AED’s.
Meer specifiek wil de Foundation ondersteuning bieden bij de aanschaf van AED’s voor organisaties en instellingen die zelf niet financieel draagkrachtig genoeg zijn voor deze aanschaf.

The aim of the Foundation is to maximize the chances of surviving a cardiac arrest in Europe. We do this by stimulating preventive health measures, encouraging scientific research into the causes of cardiac arrest, encouraging education and training in the field of resuscitation and by promoting the purchase and use of defibrillators.
More specifically, the Foundation wants to support the purchase of defibrillators for organizations and institutions that are not in a financial position to make this purchase themselves.
