ACTNews, GAZA – Three additional ambulances are on standby in Gaza. These three vehicles from the generosity of the Indonesians entrusted through Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT). Previously, two ambulances have been assigned to assist patients in Gaza.
Said Mukaffiy from ACT’s Global Humanity Response said the five ambulances would be ready in each of the governorates in Gaza, namely Rafah, Deir Al Balah, Gaza City, North Gaza, and Khan Younis. Thus, each ambulance operates in an area of 45 to 55 square kilometers.
"This initiative was made out of our concern about the need for proper medical treatments for the injured after the recent Israeli attack. They are in urgent need of ambulances to carry the patients to and from the hospitals," said Said, Saturday (6/12/2021).
The three ambulances are equipped with medical equipment including monitors, oxygen cylinders, pulse oximeters, and blood pressure measuring devices. It also has medical personnel to provide first aid to the patients.
The ambulances from the benefactors are capable of operating up to 18 hours per day. On average, each ambulance can transport up to 35 patients every day. "ACT medical team in the ambulances will help patients stay comfortable when they are transported into the ambulance or when they return home. They'll help to lift patients who are still difficult to walk, and make sure they are in good condition until they get home," concluded Mukaffiy.
Said also expressed his gratitude to all generous benefactors who have given their best assistance so that we can add more ambulances of ACT. "This is proof of the close brotherhood between Indonesians and Palestinians. With this ambulance, medical actions in Palestine will be more massive to expand the benefits," added Mukaffiy.
