Nissan to provide vehicles for support against Ebola in Liberia
Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. is donating vehicles to be used as ambulances in Liberia to help ongoing efforts to fight the Ebola virus.
Liberia is one of the countries worst affected in West Africa by the epidemic. The ambulances, based on the Nissan Patrol SUV, will be provided to the Presidentís office of Liberia which will organize their deployment. Specially adapted and equipped with stretchers and first aid kits the ambulances will be used for urgent rescue efforts. The Patrol is perfectly suited to conditions in Africa and with its rugged build will help medical personnel to reach even the most remote areas. Some units will be donated outright with more provided at a discount. Discussions are ongoing between Nissan and the authorities in Liberia who are assessing their needs.
The pledge is a gesture of the heartfelt sympathy of employees of Nissan around the world to those who are affected by the disaster, and their wish for the earliest possible recovery.
