January 4, 2016 12:52 PM | News

AmbulanceThree ambulances will be donated by the Manitoba government to the humanitarian Ambulances for Ukraine project.

The donation comes with approximately $40,000 to make any necessary repairs to ensure the ambulances are roadworthy.

“Manitobans have a special bond with the people of Ukraine and we stand with them during this crisis and in their time of need,” said Premier Greg Selinger.

“The ambulance project is a practical way Canadians, and in particular, the Ukrainian Canadian community, can help.”

A fourth ambulance will be donated by the Ukrainian Canadian Congress – Manitoba Provincial Council. The vehicles are less than eight-years-old and have had recent safety inspections.

The project will deploy the ambulances to front-line medical and health-care workers in Ukraine.
