WHO IS PULSE?

AN INNOVATIVE SOCIAL ENTERPRISE

Since 2007, the founders of Pulse have been offering unique transportation solutions in Africa that began with a company in Zambia. Their primary goal was to provide affordable, high quality medical transportation solutions specifically designed for the hard to reach places. In 2008, the Village Ambulance was created to meet this need and since that time, over 1,300 ambulances have been distributed in more than 5 countries across Africa. In 2012, the Village Ambulance became available in Uganda and there are now more than 350 in use across 35 Districts.

“Before, you would have to look for a motorcycle which is hard. If you’re lucky enough to get one, you’d get treatment. If you were unlucky, you would have to stay home and suffer in pain. Today, things are much easier with the bicycle ambulance!” 

// Teddy Ojambo

“If it were not for the Village Ambulance in my community, I could be dead right now! I encourage other community members, especially pregnant mothers, to use the Village Ambulance to get to the health center and receive care.”

Robert Omulala-Kumi

Robert had been sick for days with malaria-like symptoms when he collapsed one afternoon in the field. His family used a Village Ambulance to transport him to the health center. “When I finally came back to mind (woke up), I realized that a bicycle ambulance had just saved my life. I was so appreciative. I know it can save even more lives!”
