Emergency staffs face continued difficulties.

KARACHI -- Emergency staffs in hospitals, ambulance service drivers, and health care workers are facing continued difficulties while performing their duties, which are also disrupted due to countless attacks on them.

In Karachi, due to desensitized citizens on the roads,theses health care givers are faced with growing challenges.

International Committee of the Red Cross's (ICRC) Health Care in Danger project has been working hard to sensitise people about the urgent care needed to patients who are transferred in ambulances.

Ambulance drivers are the first ones to respond to any kind of emergency call.With many drivers refusing to give way to ambulances that are struggling to deliver patients to the hospital on time, doctors and nurses in emergency rooms struggle to save lives of patients coming in with life threatening injuries, in that short span of time. Time is their biggest enemy and these brave heroes save lives despite the hurdles.
