South Korea has donated two new ambulance vehicles to Samoa.

The vehicles which cost 65,000 US dollars have been fitted with all life saving equipment by the Kia Motors Company in New Zealand.

The Minister of Health, Gatoloaifa'ana Amataga Gidlow, says she is overwhelmed with the assistance.

The main public hospitals in Upolu and Savaii islands will get one ambulance each.
