India has recently donated a life support ambulance and stores of essential medical supplies to Kumudini Hospital of the country.
Indian High Commissioner Vikram Doraiswami handed over a Life Support Ambulance and stores of essential medical supplies such as oxygen cylinders and respiratory support equipment to Rajiv Prasad Shaha, Managing Director of Kumudini Welfare Trust and Dr Pradip Kumar Roy, Director of Kumudini Hospital, a press release said today.
The Ambulance is a part of the overall programme for supply of 109 Life Support Ambulances, as announced by India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Bangladesh in March 2021, it added.
The ambulance and medical supplies will support an extension of the excellent work being undertaken by the Kumudini Hospital in serving the people in and around Mirzapur and Tangail, both through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond it as well.
Even after the pandemic, the life-support ambulance will bolster Kumudini Hospital's ongoing extension of quality medical care to the people of Bangladesh.
The gift represents India's unswerving and long-term commitment to its unique and special friendship with the Bangladeshi people, the release said.
