From the Latin auxilĭum, help is a term that is used to refer to the help, protection or relief that is given to someone. For example: “Go ask for help! Martita fell into the well ”, “ The police immediately went to the call for help ”, “ The captain asked the Prefecture for help as the storm destroyed the boat’s controls ”.
Help is assistance that is requested or provided. Those who ask for help need help to get out of a risky situation: a family who suffers a robbery, a man whose house is on fire, a child who is trapped in the middle of a flood or a plane with technical failures need help. Said request, therefore, can be answered by a person or an organization that provides the aid.
On the other hand, there is also what is known as denial of assistance. In Spain we can say that, under that term, there is a crime committed by any other person who, in an absolutely unjustified manner, decides to carry out the disobedience of an action or requirement that the relevant authority has carried out.
All this without forgetting either that, within what would be the scope of the Law, is what is known as administrative assistance. This is a term that comes to be used to refer to the help or assistance that, within the scope of the administration, are provided by two bodies or authorities that belong to different orders.
In the same way, it is necessary to know that there is what is called a judicial aid body, which is an area of the field of Justice in which officials who are in charge of carrying out from communication acts to archiving functions work. going through actions in which they act as judicial police.
In addition to all the above, we cannot ignore that during the Spanish Civil War there was an organization that received the name of Social Assistance. The Falange included the same one that was defined as a humanitarian aid entity that was sustained by donations from the wealthiest families, which became almost impositions and measures of social pressure for them.
Soup kitchens or hospices for orphans were created by this organization, which also had a marked propaganda air. Well, by helping the population most in need, what it did was convey the idea that the national forces would be backing it up and supporting it in whatever it needed.
It is known as first aid procedures and techniques immediacy that provide victims of an accident or illness suddenly. It is about first aid since they constitute the first care that is given to the person in trouble and that, due to their characteristics, can save their life.
If a man is drowning in the sea and another subject jumps in to rescue him, the person rescued will need medical attention. First aid can be provided by your rescuer or by another individual on shore, consisting of mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and the provision of a coat to prevent hypothermia. After these first aid, you will be followed by more advanced medical assistance that will be provided in an ambulance or hospital.
