Code Red Medical Services cc is an Advanced Life Support ambulance service based in Swakopmund Namibia. Against all odds we managed to survive the economic downturn or crunch a few years back, followed by the devastating COVID pandemic and its financial ramifications. We find it extremely difficult to recover since thus unable to reach our full potential. We were unable to implement / execute our business plan and community projects in full, not to mention the purchasing of a second ambulance.

Although being a private ambulance service, Code Red Medical Services cc assisted community members on numerous occasions without any financial gain nor assistance. Most of these cases were life-or-death scenarios where no state ambulance neither any other ambulance service were available or willing to attend. Code Red Medical Services cc provided services to those who could least afford it although the additional financial burden on an already over-stretched budget.

Major setback

On the 28 March 2023 (ironically five years to the day since start up) Code Red Medical Services suffered a major setback when their 17-year old ambulance broke down due to mechanical issues bringing our hopes and dreams to a sudden end. Extensive repair work was initiated (still ongoing) but one adverse incident after another (and poor workmanship) lead to the ambulance being non-operational since. Since November 2022 our ambulance spend more days in a workshop than on the road. In between we still attended to the sick and injured but slowly but surely emergency call referrals became more frequent and we had to start saying no.

In short: No income generation for the past 101 days (as per 06/07/2023) since the breakdown occurred resulting in our financial resources being depleted. We are currently non- operational but hopefully the repair will be concluded soon enough.

Personally I've invested all my time and funds in our dream and passion for the past 5 years and have no more to give. Although we don’t know the final verdict (repair cost) yet, we are made to believe that our ambulance have reached the end of the road to and our best option being, is to replace the ambulance.

Pride, commitment and dedication took us the distance thus far but now we have run out of options. We have now decided that our pride will no longer burden us and we will ask for assistance.

All contributions will be well-received - paramedical / ambulance equipment also welcome. Thanking all sponsors in advance for any contribution big or small.
