When seconds count in saving lives
Timing and medical assistance is critical in preventing death during emergencies and especially of pregnant women and their unborn children.
In countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh and India, a woman typically has to travel around 6-8 hours to reach a hospital for childbirth. Travelling such distances whilst in full-term labour can be dangerous and result in unnecessary deaths of newborn babies and their mothers.
In the past four years, Muslim Charity has provided more than 17 ambulances in countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh and Somalia.
Each ambulance typically caters for around 1,000 patients annually and around 100 of these are life- threatening emergencies.
