Nurses, drivers and mechanics watch a spot of TV as they wait to have lunch in the main ambulance station...Kabul Ambulance Service (KAS) is the first such service in Afghanistan. In a country where anyone sick or injured usually is transported to the doctor, or hospital, by taxi, on foot or even on the back of a mule, helped by relatives, an ambulance service equipped with 4WD Landcruisers and nurses is a huge improvement. KAS is currently serving a population of about  4.5 million people with less than 15 ambulances, but hope to expand their services. © Fredrik Naumann
