Aman Ambulance Service Suspended After Sindh Govt Fails to Pay Salaries

The Aman Ambulance service has temporarily halted its operations due to a lack of funds from the Sindh government. Their emergency number ‘1021’ remains active on the recorded message.

According to an official of the ambulance service, the Sindh government has not released funds in the last few months, which compelled them to cut the fleet and service before finally suspending it completely. He added that they have been unable to pay staff salaries for four months.

The director healthcare services of the Aman Foundation, Khaqan Sikandar, said that the ambulance service will be resumed as soon as they receive funds.

The adviser to Sindh Chief Minister, Murtaza Wahab, in a video message, rejected the perception that the ambulance service had been shut down.

He said that a summary related to the funds is on CM Murad Ali Shah’s table, awaiting his approval. He said that the Sindh government wants the service to continue and hoped that the funds will be released soon.

Aman Ambulance is the product of a public-private partnership between the Aman Foundation and the Sindh government. As a result of this deal, the Sindh Medical and Rescue Service was renamed as Aman Ambulance. The rescue service heavily relies on government funding.

  • If Rescue Services are left with trail and error that will essentially end up in chaos. Aman Foundation operated well with credibility. Partnering with the Government with a civil society sound a mis-match. Where would the patient go now, as the honorable CM table is tabled with thousands with Public Private Partnerships. In the name of sick, un-well patients with accidents/home. Just think of it for the unprevileged.

  • If CM and cabnit has to use Aman service for their families, file will be approved overnight by CM. They don’t hv time to look public afffairs?
