Operation Insaniyat: India Dispatched 2nd Relief Consignment to Bangladesh for Dislodged Rohingyas

India has dispatched its 2nd relief consignment under Operation Insaniyat to help tens of thousands of dislodged Rohingya Muslims in Bangladesh who fled Myanmar following a military crackdown in Rakhine state.

India’s second consignment mainly contained 104 tonnes of milk powder, 102 tonnes of dried fish, 61 tonnes of baby food, 50000 raincoats and 50000 pairs of gum boots. 

Indian Navy Ship INS Airavat carried the 373-tonne relief consignment and sailed from Vishakhapatnam and reached Chattogram port (formerly Chittagong) Port.

India’s second relief consignment is in view of specific needs of a large number of Rohingya women and children living in camps and onset of monsoon.

India will soon send another tranche containing 1 million liters of kerosene oil and 20,000 cooking stoves under the Operation Insaniyat.

India earlier in December 2017, had announced development assistance of US $25 million for Rakhine state in order to re-establish Rohingya Muslims.

India in its first initiative had also sent relief materials for 300,000 Rohingyas in September 2017 under ‘Operation Insaniyat’ to support Bangladesh in its humanitarian efforts.
