Over the past few weeks, we’ve been encouraged and inspired by our portfolio companies and their response to COVID-19 in East Africa, and how they’re choosing to respond in order to help the community at large. One of these responses is from East Africa Emergency Services (EAES). EAES has recently teamed up with Tebita Ambulance to offer Peace of Mind Services in Addis Ababa, targeted at diaspora in the U.S. who are separated from their loved ones.

This new service allows U.S. Diaspora to sleep better at night knowing their loved ones have a provider lined up in case of an emergency. Medical emergencies are inevitable. But having the right services in place can make all the difference. The key to survival is often having a trained professional on the scene of the emergency as soon as possible.

The two services they’re offering are:

  • Peace of Mind Services - provides 24-hour emergency response for your loved ones living in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Together, we can make Ethiopia a safer country for those you love!
  • COVID-19 Care Packages - A contactless check-in and care package delivery within Addis Ababa. This service includes a thoughtful care package of basic essentials (such as injera, spices, shiro powder, fresh vegetables, coffee and fresh fruit, and personal care items such as soap and toilet paper) and also a friendly check-in with your loved one.

Tebita Ambulance is a pioneer in providing pre-hospital and emergency services and first aid training across all of Ethiopia. It is the first private ambulance and emergency service of its kind in Ethiopia. Established in November 2008 by Kibret Abebe, a dedicated professional anesthetist, Tebita has become internationally recognized as the emergency care provider in Ethiopia.
