Ann Arbor — Two ambulances once used by emergency medical personnel in Michigan have been sent to Kenya in eastern Africa.

One of the vehicles was donated by Huron Valley Ambulance and the other by Monroe Community Ambulance.

The ambulances will provide medical transportation for hospitals about 250 miles southwest of Nairobi.

Three portable ventilators, backboards, cervical collars, stretchers and other medical supplies also were donated through a partnership with Ann Arbor-based Relief for Africa.

Huron Valley Ambulance vice president Roger Simpson says the “two ambulances will go far in helping people receive lifesaving treatment.”
