This state of the art obstetric ambulance is equipped with a baby delivery kit, monitors that provide vital statistics and stabilization and resuscitation equipment.  A highly trained and experienced paramedic team of two and a professional driver will be able to provide the utmost care for mother and baby when the need arises.

The presentation which took place at Temba Clinic in Hammanskraal, Pretoria was attended by officials including the Deputy Minister of Health for South Africa, Dr. Joe Phaala. He thanked the people of Turkey for this gesture of friendship saying that it is greatly appreciated as not only will it help South Africans reach these MDG’s but shows unwavering support for a transforming healthcare service which aims to provide universal healthcare for all its people.

Turkey has official representation in 35 African countries. This is a strong indication of the commitment and confidence Turkey places in Africa.
