Iceland Gives Malawi Five Ambulances

The government of Malawi accepted a gift of five ambulances from the Icelandic government yesterday, RÚV reports. Kondwani Nankhumwa, Malawi’s Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, stated many in the country had lost their lives due to a shortage of ambulances.

The vehicles are part of a joint program between the government of Malawi and the Icelandic International Development Agency (ICEIDA) for various interventions in health, education, and water and sanitation between 2017 and 2021.

“The people and government of Malawi are extremely grateful to the people and government of Iceland for this donation, which will go a long way in improving the delivery of basic services,” Nankhumwa said.
