$ 50 pays for a nurse's medical kit

I-India uses a jeep as an ambulance for providing health care and emergency help to street children. In addition to regularly visiting the School on Wheels and Integrated Program for Street Children centres, the ambulance also helps Child Line callers needing medical attention.

In 2008, approximately three thousand children received help from the Ambulance for:

  • infectious wounds
  • eye and ear infections
  • chest infections
  • fever
  • burns
  • diseases, including malaria, hepatitis and tuberculosis

600 children were taken to hospital for more advanced treatment

Many children were also vaccinated for some or all of the following:
  • hepatitis B
  • tuberculosis
  • diphtheria
  • tetanus
  • polio

The Ambulance is donated by the Embassy of Finland and functioning through the support of Government of India.
