“Being and ambulance was a childhood dream for me. I think it’s a blessing to be able to save someone’s life. Thankfully, I have been doing this job for six years, I now work at the health center of Warte town. I have thanked the people of Balakayati many times, they have helped me by clearing the way while transporting a patient, even though there are some drivers who panic when they hear the sirens and clear the way slowly, but what pains me is that there are some unaware people who don’t feel responsible, they won’t clear the way and they even race with me at times. Imagine the car behind you driving fast to save somebody’s life. I really hope people stop doing that, so that ambulance drivers can drive the patients to the hospital even if it’s minutes faster. Believe me when I say that not minutes, but seconds are important to me as an ambulance driver, at times seconds are not a short time to save someone’s life”.
