The government has received food and medical aid to support victims of floods in the country.

The relief items were received by the chairman of the Floods Disaster Coordinating Committee Major-Gen John Koimo in Mombasa.

“As head of the committee, I thank India for this support,” Koimo said.

Kenya has experienced floods in most counties, particularly in Tana River, Kilifi, Nairobi, Nakuru, eastern and western regions that have left more than 200 people dead and thousands displaced from their homes.

The Deputy High Commissioner of India to Kenya Rohit Vadhwana handed over the items to Koimo.

He said following a meeting with Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua on May 6, the ship was swiftly routed to Kenya.

Vadhwana said India stands with Kenya in the ongoing flood crisis.

“In an earnest display of solidarity, India reiterates its resolute commitment to the government and the resilient people of Kenya in their time of need. As the first responder to any crisis in the Indian Ocean region, the Indian navy dispatched Sumedha to Kenya,” he said.
