New Delhi, November 12

India is in the process of delivering humanitarian assistance to Sudan, South Sudan, Djibouti and Eritrea in the form of food aid to people affected by natural calamities and the Covid pandemic in these countries, said the MEA.

An Indian naval ship, INS Airavat, left Mumbai on October 24 for this region with aid consisting of wheat flour, rice and sugar.

The ship will depart the Port of Djibouti, where it has unloaded food aid, and will reach Mombasa (Kenya) on November 20 to deliver aid meant for South Sudan.  

INS Airavat had earlier delivered food aid after reaching Port Sudan on November 2. It then docked at Massawa on November 6 to deliver food aid meant for Eritrea. “This gesture has been greatly appreciated by the countries concerned,’’ said MEA spokesperson Anurag Srivastava.
