TURNING VISION INTO ACTION:
PROVIDING AN AMBULANCE SERVICE TO TRANSPORT PATIENTS
Ambulance services for patient transport remain a challenge in India. The distance between home and hospital and the costs are a major problem for the poor population living in rural villages in India. The coronavirus outbreak is making the situation worse, as ambulance services are overwhelmed or not functioning properly. Meanwhile, we have received many phone calls from villagers asking for help in transporting their family members to the hospital.
This service is free of charge, and it is a great support as it was launched at the end of 2021 for the communities living around the EWM children’s homes in Pudukkottai district. In this way, we bring help to many suffering people and we can have a positive impact in the communities where EWM operates.
