Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Over 10 days we're driving over 6000km across 8 countries for 1 cause.

This is no ordinary journey, the drive will be tough, tiring and extremely rewarding. 

Across Pakistan emergency medical transport has long been neglected. In an area as vast, diverse and over populated as the District of Rawalpindi the lack of accessible emergency transport has dire consequences, particularly for impoverished families living in remote villages.

Patients from these remote rural areas who have been referred to one of the four main hospitals in the District of Rawalpindi are most vulnerable. Unable to access medical transport or pay for a taxi, they rely on charitable bystanders in private cars to reach the hospitals. Often with no transport available many have no choice but to walk for miles to receive the treatment they require.

Under the current circumstances expectant mothers and young children are especially vulnerable. Their health is often affected due to inaccessible transport which results in ther treatment being delayed.

Muslim Hands intends on allocating the ambulances to several of the basic health units in villages across the District of Rawalpindi to provide an accessible and efficient emergency medical service.

Insha'Allah upon the successful completion of this project we would like to extend this service to other areas of the developing world where there exists a need for emergency medical transport. 

For the ill, sick and injured of Rawalpindi this fleet of 25 ambulances will help save lives, insha'Allah.
