Operation Shayata: Indian Navy to provide humanitarian aid to cyclone-hit Mozambique


On request from the Government of Mozambique, Indian Navy ships operating in the Southern Indian Ocean were diverted to Port Beira to provide Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief (HADR) to the local population post-cyclone ‘IDAI’.
