Thank you very much for your quick response and I am glad to know that you are from Zimbabwe. Sorry that our Website was written in Japanese but I can give you more information as necessary.
I was in Zambia for 10 years from 1996 to 2006 and of course visited Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. It is very wonderful place. Right now you are in Australia?
When I visited Harare in 2001, I saw one private ambulance company, providing EMS. But I understand that it is for the people who can afford to pay ambulance charges.
In Zambia, there was no single public ambulance available for the general public. You know what I mean.
So we created one basic system under the Zambia Police Service since it was the only governmental organization at that time being responsible for various emergencies. I have not yet studied about Zimbabwe but the capital city was very advnaced simply compared with Lusaka, Zambia when I visited in 2000........... bit old info. but. Thank you

You can see some activities in Zambia of this organization which I am also a member. It is written in English.
