There is nothing new in the idea of people helping people. From the dawn of the history, Man has suffered from disease, from the merciless ravages of Nature and from his own inhumanity to man that makes countless thousands mourn. Man started organising himself for helping the unfortunate victims of disasters, both Natural and man-made, and the ?Red Cross?, the vision of Jean Henry Dunant, was born in 1864. The year was 1930. Indians throughout the Country had waged the non-violent War of Independence against the then British rulers. For rendering ambulance service to the wounded freedom fighters in Mumbai, four leading members of the legal and medical professions ? Dr. Munshi, Dr. Moolgavkar, Justic Kanuga, and Solicitor Mehta - conceived the idea of organising a volunteer corps. The Bombay City Ambulance Corps was thus born on 2nd June 1930 with principal objects of ambulance service and ambulance education.
