Several Private German organisations have expressed their approval towards supporting the establishment of a new free ambulance service in Sri Lanka, which will operate on land and in the air.

The proposal was made during a meeting with German state officials, representatives of the World Bank and Minister of Health Rajitha Senaratne.

Accordingly the representatives had pledged to provide 4 Helicopters, 1050 Ambulances and 240 emergency vehicles for the relevant ambulance service.

The officials further stated human resources to manage the service would be obtained from the country, whilst personnel will be trained in Germany.
