City Donates Retired Ambulance To Los Amigos Project

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - Members of the Lethbridge Sunrise Rotary Club will once again be donating emergency vehicles to communities in Mexico as part of their Los Amigos Project.

 

The City of Lethbridge agreed to donate a retired ambulance on Tuesday afternoon. That will go down with them on March 30th, along with two ambulances from the Town of Taber and a handi-bus from the Handi-Bus Association in Cardston. They're also working on acquiring some other vehicles as well.

 

Project Coordinator Jim Campbell believes the ambulances are crucially important. He says "in Mexico, especially in the rural communities, when someone has to go to the hospital, the greatest cause of death is the trip to the hospital because it's often done in personal vehicles and there's no medical support along the way. These ambulances help to put in place medical service along the way, they work as mobile hospitals."

 

Campbell adds "it just really makes us feel proud that vehicles labelled with the communities here in southern Alberta are in constant use down there in supporting the kids in education, taking care of health care needs, and working with people with disabilities."

 

Along with the vehicles, the group will be donating fire prevention and EMS equipment, as well as wheelchairs and walkers.
