MP presents ambulance to people after years of struggling


HUNDREDS of people from 28 wards in Erave, Southern Highlands, who have been struggling to transport their sick and pregnant mothers to Kagua station will now be able to do so.
Local MP Wesley Raminai presented a new ambulance to the people of Erave recently which will be stationed at the Kagua sub-health centre to carry out its daily operation serving patients from Erave.
Southern Highlands deputy governor Andrew Ipi commended Raminai and the Kagua-Erave development authority (DDA) for prioritising health in the district as people had suffered for years.
“We are very grateful for this ambulance because similar donations were made but we do not know where these ambulances or government vehicles are at the moment,” he said. Erave local level government president John Roimb said the ambulance was a valuable addition to health services in the LLG.
Raminai said health and education were among his priorities for developing his electorate. He advised district officials to ensure the vehicle was used for its intended purpose – to transport the sick as well as those needing urgent medical attention.
Raminai said his office would continue to assist people in the district in terms of health.
