What people say about us

  • Medical Staff at Glastonbury Festival who battled to save the life of a 26-year-old man who was found collapsed in his tent were described as "exemplary" last week "From the first moment, he was given the highest standard of care - possibly even better than he would have had if this had happened to him whilst he was out and about in the wider community."

  • FMS have made substantial and extremely generous donations to help The Tulsi Trust and we can say with certainty, that without their support, we would not have managed to maintain the projects running and many people would have lost their lives as a result. The Mother and Child program along with medicine, and the vital ambulance service would not be possible without the generosity and continuous support of FMS.
