Indian Navy continues Humanitarian efforts in Mozambique on Mar 22

The ships of the First Training Squadron of the Indian Navy (Sujata, Sarathi and Shardul) and the Chetak helicopter of Indian Navy are currently undertaking Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief operations at Port Beira, Mozambique since 18 Mar 19.

The ships were diverted from sea post Cyclone ‘Idai’ hit the coast of Mozambique on 15 Mar 19 causing large scale destruction and loss of lives. Over 800 people from the local population was affected by this disaster.

Cyclone Idai 

It is regarded as one of the worst tropical cyclones on record to affect Africa and the Southern Hemisphere as a whole. 

The tenth named storm and record-breaking eighth intense tropical cyclone of the 2018–19 South-West Indian Ocean cyclone season, Idai originated from a tropical depression that formed off the eastern coast of Mozambique on 4 March. Idai brought strong winds and caused severe flooding in Madagascar, Mozambique, Malawi, and Zimbabwe.
