The Medical Aid Society of Malawi (Masm) on Wednesday took delivery of three new ambulances which it has acquired from Mike Appel and Gatto at a cost of K24 million.
The new ambulances bring the total number of Masm’s fleet of ambulances to six across the country. They will be deployed to the three major cities of Blantyre, Lilongwe and Mzuzu.
Masm chief operations officer, Dorica Chirwa, said the new ambulances will help Masm to serve its members better.
“Demand for ambulance services has increased tremendously and the new units will help us address the challenge of few vehicles we had for the service,” said Chirwa.
Among other things, Chirwa said the new ambulances were custom made for the purpose and that they are also bigger with a capacity to carry more patients at once.
On his part, Mike Appel and Gatto chief executive officer, Nazeer Osman, said the vehicles have all the necessary equipment for emergencies.
