Salaam Cup 2018 – First Aid Report

Preparations for Salaam Cup began in earnest at the beginning of the year,
From our experiences last year, the First Aid station was one of the more “popular” stations at SC 2017 and we didn’t expect it to be any different for SC 2018.

And is wasn’t, this year we had just under 70 incidents logged and thankfully most of them were minor bumps and grazes and a few cases of heat exhaustion and dehydration.

This year we were fortunate to have Healthcare Professionals’ from our community managing the station, despite the long hours, warm weather and hospital like shifts the team did a tremendous job in tending to the walking wounded.

SJFA and the Salaam Cup organising committee would like to extend our gratitude to our first aid team of Abida Jaffer, Dr Shabbir Merali, Dr Tauseef Mehrali and Dr Ali Abbas Hasham who gave up their valuable time on the day.

We would also like to thank Shabbir Kassam of Abell ( Chemists and Medics Pharmacy  (  for generously donating our first aid supplies
