With the help of voluntary workers we have launched a permanent Ambulance division to cater to ambulance needs for the poor, It fills the gap for the rest of the city as well. They are linked to the larger hospitals in the city and can be reached for emergency services at our designated phone numbers. A male nurse accompanies the driver of each ambulance to manage the patients on the way to the hospital. This is essential as patients often suffer other complications also such as a cardiac problem or a fracture or may be bleeding profusely. A minimum fee of Rs. 1507- per trip is charged, but is waived where the patient cannot afford it.
We presently have a fleet of six fully-equipped and air-conditioned ambulances including a Toyota Hiace, Mazda Ambulance and a Double Cabin Toyota Ambulance which are operational 24 hours a day. The Ford ambulance was donated by the Rotary Club of Watford North, and visits distant places for the promotion of the early detection of cancer. It has been particularly beneficial during the floods of ’93, ’94 and ’95 when it brought patients to the Rahat Kada hospice all the way from the interior of Sindh. Their diagnosis and stay comes absolutely free.
