Volunteers heading to Pakistan with a convoy of 25 ambulances collected more than £200 for their mission in Bradford city centre.

Seven people from the area are joining a team of 50 volunteers from UK who will drive the vehicles 3,700 miles through eight countries.

They hope to offer the poverty-stricken Rawalpindi district its first official public ambulance network.

The vehicles will serve medical centres and hospitals within a 40-mile radius.

The scheme is a partnership between international aid agencies Muslim Hands UK and the National Police Aid Convoys.

People joining the convoy, which will leave on April 19, collected £225.69 on Saturday.

As commendable as this is, surely it's the responsibility of the Pakistani government to do all of this?

Then again, since corruption is rife in this rich, nuclear-powered country, it's a pretty sick indictment of the kind of governments we support around the world.
