Ghulkin, November 29: A group of youth belonging to Ghulkin village of Gojal have started an ambulance service which will help patients to commute between their homes and the boat stand from where they can go to Aliabad for better health care. The youth behind the project are Amir Ahmad Khan, Saif ud Din, Rashid ud Din and Saleem Yousuf

It is pertinent to note that the Gojal Valley has been suffering due to lack of health facilities in the region. While the government has provided ambulance to the region but it is insufficient for the more than 25,000 people living in scattered valleys and villages.

The ambulance service will not only provide youth to earn livelihood, it will also enable a much needed service for the region’s population.

  1. Bravo. The dream should be to provide ambulance service for the entire mountain community of GB. They should apply for the Prime Minister’s “Small and Medium Enterprise” loan scheme and increase the number of their vehicles. It is doable.
