Two hospitals in Kasese district have received two more ambulances to handle emergency cases.

 

The two ambulances donated by the Belgium Technical Corporation through the Ministry of Health were delivered to the district headquarters on Thursday.

 

Another pick-up car to be used by the District Health Officer to monitor health services was donated by the ministry.

 

The district chairman Lt. Col. Mawa Muhindo received the ambulances from the Minister of Health Dr. Christine Ondoa in Fort Portal town.

 

Ondoa urged the district leadership to ensure proper usage and maintenance of the ambulances so that emergency cases are taken to hospitals in time.

 

Addressing journalists shortly after receiving the ambulances, Lt. Co. Mawa said the two ambulances had been allocated to Bwera and Kilembe hospitals respectively.

 

The vehicles bring the number of ambulances in the district to three following the first one donated by Save the Children in December 2012.

 

That ambulance is already being used in the Busongora North health sub-district based at Rwesande Health Center IV in Kyabarungira sub-county.

 

The district chairman explained that that the local government and the hospital administrations would fuel the ambulances in their areas of jurisdiction.

 

The ambulances are expected to assist in transporting women in labour, road accidents victims, cholera cases and other emergencies.

 

The ambulance for Bwera Hospital will be handed to the facility on Friday while Kilembe hospital will officially receive its ambulance on Monday.
