St. John Ambulance is quite active in schools where we have about 6,000 members throughout the state. We also have about 1,000 adult members who assist at Area and State headquarters. In Kota Kinabalu and Sandakan we provide accident and emergency services by supplementing and complementing existing services provided by the Medical Department, Hospital, Fire Brigade and Police. In the past we have provided the following outstanding services:

 

 

Building of a hanging bridge in Long Pasia connecting two villages. This was done in cooperation with Raleigh International Group, with financial assistance by Canada Fund.

 

Providing solar lighting system to a Rungus long house in Kudat, with financial assistance from the Australia Development Fund, bringing light to about 30 families who had not had lightning for many decades.

 

Building a completely new long house in Kg. Hobut, with support from Canada Fund.

 

Building a kindergarten in Kg. Tinnagol for the benefit of the Rungus community. This project was undertaken with support from Operation Raleigh with funding from Canada Fund.

 

Providing community health care program with support from Canada World Youth for a duration of 3 months in villagers off Beaufort and Kuala Penyu and also in Pulau Bangi a very remote island off Kudat.

 

Organising Eye Care Program with support from SEE International and financial assistance from Canda Fund. About 75 people were operated on in Ranau.

 

Teaching of first aid to Education Department staff, Water Works Department, Fire Department, school teachers, members of the public and numerous others on an ongoing basis throughout the year in different parts of the state.

 

"Aids for Independent Living centre" at Kota Kinabalu. We initiated this service which is now being managed by the Senior Citizen Association of Sabah.

 

Mock Exercise ; SJAM prepared about 300 casualties for a major "Plane Crash (Airbus)" mock exercise on 1/12/97 at Kota Kinabalu. It was headed by the Police and participated by Fire Brigade, Medical Department, Army and St. John Ambulance. The organisers have singled out the St. John Ambulance for the outstanding support and response.

 

To provide the above services we had to use our resources and support from well wishes.
