The BIG Drive

21 February 2013

National Police Aid Conveys and Nottingham charity Muslim Hands have joined forces to take uncomplicated equipment for emergency care, uniforms and a radio system to hospitals in the impoverished areas of Rawalpindi and Islamabad.

And event organisers met at The City Ground on Tuesday to pass on the keys of the first donated UK ambulance which will be driven through Europe, into Turkey, Iran and then on to Pakistan.

Chairman of National Police Aid Convoys, David Scott said: "The funds we raise to make this happen will truly reduce unnecessary fatalities in maternity, road accidents and heart attacks by providing ambulances with sufficient medical equipment to safely treat initial injuries and transport patients to the local hospital as quickly as possible."

Chairman of Muslim Hands, Syed Lakhte Hassanain said: "We'll be travelling the length of the country to ensure that we can raise sufficient funds to make this a successful project. It's spectacular and ambitious and we urge everyone to get involved by helping us however they can."

Nottingham Forest press and PR executive, Ben White said: "I am delighted that the club has been able to get behind such a fantastic and worthwhile cause.

"I would urge all of our supporters to assist in any way they can to ensure its successful completion when the convoys depart on April 19."

25 ambulances will depart from a selected location in April as they set out on a mammoth ten-day journey to Pakistan.

Anyone over 21 with a full driving licence can apply to go. More details are on the Muslim Hands website.
