UAE continues to offer its valuable support to the victims of the tragic floods in the southern Indian state of Kerala.
Emirates SkyCargo will carry flood relief cargo of more than 175 tons to Kerala, India.
Over a dozen flights, the Dubai-based air cargo operator will transport the relief goods, which have been donated by various UAE-based businesses and organisations, to Thiruvananthapuram – the nearest open Emirates station to the areas most affected by the flood.
The goods, including lifesaving boats, blankets and dry food items, will be handed over to the local flood relief and aid organisations for distribution.
Kochi International Airport remains closed to airlines after the flooding and is scheduled to reopen on August 29.
More than 1.3 million people have now packed into temporary camps even though the floods, which have left at least 420 dead and missing, are fast receding.
There are an estimated three million Indians in the UAE, with many from Kerala which has a large Muslim population.
