    507,690 yen

Beneficial Organization :

Gianyar Hospital is a class B hospital located in the eastern region of Bali with 13 special medical examination departments and 200 beds. It examines about 60,000 outpatients annually. Though it is an important hospital that should undertake a fundamental role in the east Bali region, there is no ambulance and that patients are carried by ordinary car. This makes it difficult for medical specialists to give appropriate and prompt care to the patients during transportation and there are many cases in which they die on the way to the hospital.

This program is aimed to solve this problem by assisting in the transportation cost of a used ambulance transferred by Side by Side International, a special non-profit organization, to the beneficial body to be donated to the hospital.
