The humanitarian car will support the healthcare service in this besieged enclave. Supported by medical volunteers, this ambulance will transport the patients to the nearest medical facilities.

In the near future, there will be two additional units, which are currently being assembled. Later, each ambulance will be deployed in each Gaza governorate. It is estimated that, in the next two months, these ambulances will be able to serve thousands of patients.
"Alhamdulillah, ambulances from Indonesia are ready to serve in total the patients in need in Gaza. Every day, one ambulance can serve up to 35 patients. The ambulances are also equipped with first aid kits and other pieces of equipment so the safety and comfort of patients is guaranteed. ," concluded Said.
