India is hit by the second wave of Wuhan pneumonia (new coronavirus disease, COVID-19), countries have come to help, including Kenya donated 12 tons of food to India, to do their part in the fight against the epidemic.
According to the Times of India, Kenya donated 12 tons of tea, coffee and peanuts to the Indian Red Cross; the food was produced locally in Kenya and distributed to various parts of Maharashtra through food aid.
Willy Bett, a senior Kenyan official in charge of this matter, said, “At a time when the epidemic is rampant, the Kenyan government is looking forward to donating food to work with the people and government of India in the fight against the epidemic.” Bett, who brought the food from New Delhi to Mumbai, noted that the main target of the food distribution was frontline medical personnel, who were working tirelessly to save lives and hoped the food would help them.
In response, Homi Khusrokhan, vice president of the Maharashtra branch of the Indian Red Cross Society, said the donation symbolized the empathy of the Kenyan people for the people of India and was truly heartwarming.
