The consignment includes 22 tonnes of Humanitarian and Disaster Relief (HADR) items such as tents, sleeping bags/mats, blankets, power generation sets, ready to eat meals, basic sanitary utilities and hygiene kits, and 18 tonnes of medical aid. It also includes items required for baby food, water purification, menstrual hygiene, repelling mosquitoes, along with malaria and dengue diagnostic kits, anti-venom treatment and several types of testing kits that can be readily deployed on the ground.

An earlier consignment of immediate relief material was brought in by Indian Naval Ship Sumedha and handed over to the Government of Kenya at Mombasa Port on 10th May.

“The assistance to Kenya is a reiteration of our strong and friendly relations with Kenya, in the spirit of South-South cooperation and our commitment to keep Africa on top of our priorities, as spelt out by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.  It is also in line with India’s philosophy of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam (World Is One Family) and our commitment to collective action to deal with natural disasters under India’s vision of Security and Growth for All in the Region (SAGAR) for the Indian Ocean Region. Our thoughts and sympathies are with those affected by the devastating floods in Kenya. We stand in solidarity with the Government and People of Kenya during this time,” said the High Commission Of India to Kenya in a press statement.
