About Us

St. Gabriel Community Ambulance Trust was founded by Gabriela Teleman to fill the gap between State Ambulance and Private Service Ambulance. Working for so many years in pre-hospital care and reaching towards the very low level of living of the patients did help us to identify the needs of our community. Our life saving skills coming from the day by day field experience make us the best ones to train people on this life saving technique.

St. Gabriel provides health care to patients in need of emergence medical rescue. As part of the healthcare delivery system we believe that our services help maintain a healthy and productive society. We place great emphasis on the compassion and skills of our trained staff, seeking ways to share our professionalism with the community at large.

HIV/AIDS patients are the beneficiaries of a free service, the same for abused women, children and unemployed people.

" Words cannot begin to express my gratitude to you Ms. Gabriella Teleman, Owner of the St. Gabriel Community Ambulance Trust and founder of St Raphael Health Recovery Clinic, together with your well-abled team of staff. In early January this year, you selflessly heeded to a desperate call from me seeking assistance for a fellow community member in Kuisebmond who suffered from terminal breast cancer. The State institutions refused to attend to her on the premise that her condition was at an advanced stage hence left to die at home. Upon hearing my plea, you summoned me to the St. Raphael Health Recovery Clinic together with the late Ms. Maureen Petrina Kooper, who sadly succumbed to cancer on 18 January 2018. Thank you, Gabriela, for administering medication, observing her for a day and for having given the late Ms. Kooper dignified treatment amidst her pain and weak state. Surely when I returned to collect her from your health facility, she looked so much better, felt stronger and was able to walk on her own. Your team not only administered medication, but treated her like a human being, and that her life mattered (a human quality that greatly lacks in the majority of our state health personnel) Although Ms. Kooper is no more, on behalf of the family, myself and everyone who assisted in making sure she felt loved during the last days of her life on earth, I wish to sincerely thank you and your team for being there every time we called on you for assistance, for being there even on the 17th January 2018 to rush her to the state hospital in Walvis Bay. It was your team at the Hospital that administered treatment while state personnel was present, it was the St. Gabriel Ambulance Oxygen supply that kept her alive, your team checked her blood pressure and ran observation tests on her in our presence. When she was handed over to the state, sadly not long thereafter she died. May her soul rest eternally. My prayer and wish for your organization Gabriela is that you be blessed, may the good Lord enlarge your territory and that of your team. Thank you for the selfless act of kindness to assist the community of Walvis Bay. I forgot to mention that you did all the above at no cost to the family. That is truly commendable and I cannot thank you enough. Please pass my sincere thanks to the paramedics and staff at St Raphael Health Recovery Clinic who attended Ms. Kooper for a job indeed, well done. We are truly grateful for the courtesy and compassion shown to the late Ms. Kooper, and the family during that difficult time. God bless you. "
