ADDIS ABABA, Oct. 15 (Xinhua) — Kibret Abebe, founder and owner of Tebita Ambulance Pre-Hospital Emergency Medical Service in Ethiopia, is seeking to expand his company’s business as he sees an opportunity amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tebita Ambulance Pre-Hospital Emergency Medical Service is a social enterprise that developed the first private ambulance service in the East African nation more than a decade ago.

“In my opinion, COVID-19 is a very good opportunity. It may compromise some of our business activity, but we’re hoping that in the near future things will be opened up and in the presence of COVID-19, even our organization may grow because we’re turning threat to opportunity,” Abebe told Xinhua.

Abebe has been playing his part in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic by partnering with the Ethiopian government to make available the services of his firm’s state-of-the-art ambulances in the anti-COVID-19 fight. Read more.
