The first day of service for the ambulance proved crucial. A 65 year old man was attacked by robbers and stabbed in the lungs. He was bought to Herona were they treated him but his condition grew worse and after a scan it was discovered he had intra-abdominal bleeding and needed to be referred. At this point it would usually take around 4 hours to raise an ambulance and get to a Kampala hospital, the ambulances carry no medical equipment and the patient would have probably died on the way. With our ambulance at the ready, equipped with oxygen the patient was rushed to Kampala where he was successfully treated.
Herona Hospital is so grateful to everyone who made this possible.

Being witness to a mother arriving at Herona Hospital already dead from child birth is extremely difficult.
