Assistant High Commissioner of India in Rajshahi Sanjeev Kumar Bhati has handed over a life support ambulance to Singra Upazila Health Complex.
State Minister for ICT Zunaid Ahmed Palak was present at the ceremony held at Singra Upazila Health Complex, Natore on Tuesday.
This ambulance is a part of the overall programme for supply of 109 Life Support Ambulances, as announced by Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi during his State Visit to Bangladesh in March 2021.
India has assisted Bangladesh in its fight against COVID-19 in a wide variety of means including supply of PPE kits, medical equipments, testing kits, vaccines, and through capacity-building and experience-sharing workshops.
Bangladesh too responded when India needed assistance during the second wave of COVID-19 earlier this year.
As a close friend of Bangladesh, India remains committed to doing all it can to assist Bangladesh, within the limits of its capacity, in its response to improving public health and welfare of its people, said the High Commission.
