Khotang, May 22, 2017: Khotang Service Society Doha, Qatar has extended an ambulance to the Khotang district.
The Society’s donation of an ambulance comes a month after the Khotang Service Society in UK provided seven ambulances to the district.
Society’s Secretary Parshuram Shrestha said the Nepali migrants abroad were donating the ambulance to end the compulsion of the general public living in the remote areas of the country – forced to face unwarranted deaths due to untimely treatment.
The ambulance was purchased at a cost of Rs 1.8 million after a fundraising campaign among the Nepali youths living in Qatar, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia and South Korea among other labour destination countries. The Society handed over the ambulance to the Khotang Unity Service Society on Friday.
