Ambulances to respond to Covid-19

Divider text here
On Saturday 11 April, Enabel delivered four fully-equipped ambulances to its Congolese partner following the call issued by the DR Congo’s Technical Covid-19 Response Secretariat. 

Two ambulances were transferred to the Technical Secretariat of the National Response Unit with a view of transporting health teams and any patients requiring advanced assistance. 

The two other ambulances were transferred to the Saint Joseph Hospital of Kinshasa, one of the five Covid-19 referral hospitals. A shipment of mobile hand-washing stations was delivered with the ambulances to Saint Joseph with a view of optimising hygiene at the hospital. The ambulances could be procured quickly through Enabel’s DR Congo health programme, which has assisted the Government since the outbreak of the epidemic in the country on 10 March 2020.
