Gaunaha, West Champaran, Bihar | Tanju Devi

There is only one ambulance for 18 villages in Gaunaha block of West Champaran district. Pregnant women say that ambulance never arrives on time. They either have to hire a private vehicle or use a bullock cart to get the nearest health facility. 

Please call the Block Medical Officer of Gaunaha on + 91 9470063204 and urge him to ensure that more ambulances are allotted to the village and are made functional.
