Ambulances in service 24 hours a dayacross the country.

It is unfortunate and sad that many poor people in Pakistan and Kashmir do not have access to an ambulance. Many of those who are poverty stricken may not even have access to a car or any other form of transport in times of medical emergencies, let alone a FREE ambulance service.

As a result of such lack of service patients may suffer a great deal more pain due to the delay in gaining medical treatment. Pregnant women may lose their lives as well as the child they were carrying. Victims of accidents may not be able to get immediate medical help to keep them alive. Patients may become disabled or scarred for life.

Thara Welfare Trust is also providing a FREE ambulance transportation service for coffins from airports to place of burrial in Pakistan and Azad Kashmir. We provide this service for dead bodies brought from the UK, Europe and other countries. Read more...

Our ambulances are free for the poor, have a stretcher facility, provide a safe and comfortable ride for the patient and have priority over other traffic in emergency situations.

The trust desprately needs your donations and support to continue this work. Smaller ambulances cost around £5,000, and large around £ 13,000. Theses prices are for buying a used vehicle and converting it for ambulance use. Brand new ambulances cost double this amount.

The trust aims to purchase more ambulances. There is an urgent need for a 4WD ambulance to reach hilly and off road areas. To purchase a used 4WD and to make the neccessary convertions we need a dontion of £15,000.

Anyone providing a single donation to purchace an ambulance will have the sponsors details printed on the vehicle. Smaller donations for equipment such as stretchers and breathing apparatus would cost around £1,500. Anyone willing to donate a vehcle such as Toyota Hiace in Pakistan or Azad Kashmir would be greatly appreciated. We can convert this vehicle for ambulance use.
