The Humble Beginning of The Free Ambulance Project
The project started as a measure to help the families of corona victims who have passed away. Our brave volunteers would risk their lives to transport and bury the contagious bodies and perform funerals for them.
However, soon we realized that it is not just the families of corona victims who need ambulance service. Countless poor people do not have the means to hire an ambulance when it is absolutely necessary.
MASTUL Foundation is dedicated to answer the calls of the distressed and assist them in their time of need. For this reason, we started our free ambulance service for the underprivileged.
Till now, we have transported and buried the bodies of over 50 people who come from poor families unable to afford ambulance service or burials. We also transport people who are severely ill but cannot pay for an ambulance to take them to the hospital.
The operation is all across the country as we have thousands of volunteers in almost every part of Bangladesh to assist the ill or families of the departed.
Why There is Poverty in Urban And Rural Areas
Poverty in Bangladesh does not consume 90% of the population as it did after the liberation war. We have made a great deal of progress and as a result, poverty has fallen to the extent where we can call ourselves a middle-income economy.
However, poverty is still a big issue that has not been entirely resolved and it is evident in the streets and slums of Bangladesh. Poverty exists both in rural areas and urban areas and one of the major reasons for this is overpopulation.
Overpopulation exerts immense pressure on the environment. As a result, river erosion and flooding take place making it difficult for crops to grow. In turn, low agricultural productivity leads to rural poverty.
River erosion also leads to a lot of people losing their houses. These unfortunate people come to urban areas and resort to begging.
Urban areas are very crowded and there are limited jobs. It is one of the main reasons for urban poverty.
Why the free ambulance service is important
- The main reason for our free ambulance service is because people who are under the poverty line and lower-income families cannot afford ambulance services. If they catch a disease or end up in an accident then they have to give up most or all their money and assets for treatment. Ambulance service costs a lot in Bangladesh and it is simply not affordable for someone who is going to have to pay extensive medical bills.
- Another important reason why the free ambulance service is necessary is that poor people cannot afford funerals and they would rather discard the bodies of their loved ones inappropriately instead of burying them. This is a very dangerous practice that can lead to the spread of diseases. For this reason, we not only provide free ambulance service but also funerals.
The MASTUL Foundation is doing all in its power to provide free ambulance service to the underprivileged people of Bangladesh. However, there are simply too many people who need the service and our resources are limited. We desperately need a new ambulance so that we can keep up with the calls that we receive on a regular basis.
