YANGON, Myanmar – The parent company of Capital Automotive, Ford’s dealership in Myanmar, has donated a new Ford Everest ambulance to Charity Hospital to help improve emergency medical services.
With limited emergency services available in Myanmar, particularly in rural provinces such as Aung Pan, where the hospital is located, the Everest will be one of the first ambulances available, providing emergency transportation and remote medical services for the region.
The Everest was customized into a full-service ambulance by RMA Group, a long-standing Ford Export and Growth partner providing automotive expertise and training in markets throughout Asia Pacific, including Myanmar.
“Together with our partners, Ford and RMA Group, we are proud to be donating this Ford Everest to Charity Hospital, which will help them provide much-needed emergency care and services to people in the rural community,” said Ko Ko Gyi, managing director of Capital Diamond Star Group. “This donation reflects our intention to support the local communities and make a positive difference through social and economic contributions.”
Ford is entering Myanmar as the first global automaker to offer a complete automotive solution. In addition to its plans to offer a full showroom of global One Ford cars, trucks and SUVs, Ford has brought in world-class training resources and technical experts to provide skills training for its employee technicians, sales and service people.
