Displaying the spirit of 'South-South Cooperation', India supplied shipments comprising relief materials to flood-affected Kenya. The Indian High Commissioner in the African nation Namgya Khampa on Tuesday handed over 20 tons of supplies as part of the rehabilitation efforts. The consignment of 22-ton loaded HADR items including tents, power generation sets, and sanitary and hygiene kits was received by the country's Secretary to the Cabinet Mercy Wanjau, and other senior officials.
This comes days after an initial shipment of immediate relief material was brought in by Indian Naval Ship Sumedha at Mombasa Port on May 10th. The latest consignment includes "18 tons of medical aid, comprising essential life-saving drugs and surgical equipment for critical care and wound management. It also includes items required for baby food, water purification, menstrual hygiene," as per an official statement released by the Government of India (GoI).
Due to the outbreak of water-borne disease during the floods, the GoI also sent malaria and dengue diagnostic kits, anti-venom treatment, and several types of testing kits. The purpose of these is to ensure on-ground healthcare facelift for Kenya's overburdened medical system in the current situation.
"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," the GoI statement informed concluding that in line with India’s philosophy of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam (World Is One Family), the initiative is part of India’s vision of Security and Growth for All in the Region (SAGAR) for the Indian Ocean Region.
The efforts by India to help those who suffered the "devastating floods in Kenya," are aimed at advocating solidarity with the Government and People of Kenya during this time.
