Japan to Provide Recycled Ambulances to Moolai Cooperative Hospital in Jaffna.
The Government of Japan provided a grant of US$ 36,759 (approx. Rs. 7.2 million) through the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP) for the provision of “Recycled Ambulances for Moolai Co-operative Hospital”. The grant contract was signed on 24th March 2021 at the Ambassador’s Residence in Colombo, between His Excellency SUGIYAMA Akira, Ambassador of Japan and Mr. M. Gnaneswaran, President of the Co-operative Hospital Society Ltd, Moolai.
In fact, there was one old ambulance in service, donated by a hospital in 2007, thus, carrying out emergency services and mobile clinic efficiently has been a huge challenge. Co-operative Hospital Society Ltd., Moolai, wholeheartedly thank Embassy of Japan for coming forward to give these two vehicles considering the needs.
