Catch up: Wales this Week, Wheels Of Life - From The Valleys to Uganda

A team of Welsh paramedics are saving lives six thousand miles from their Pontypridd base.

They’re a key part of the PONT charity, which is supplying a fleet of motorcycle ambulances to Mbale, in Uganda. The remote, mountainous region has virtually no emergency service and desperately-ill people often have to find their own way to medical help.

But now the motorcycle ambulances - funded by the Rotary Club - and drivers trained by the PONT team are helping thousands of local people reach help.
