India to send more relief material to Philippines

New Delhi : India will send another consignment of relief material to the Philippines to help people coping with the havoc caused by typhoon Haiyan in which over 10,000 people are feared killed.

The additional relief material consignment will include temporary shelters, prefabricated huts and life-saving medical care will be sent soon in an Indian Navy ship from Visakhapatnam, said a defence ministry release.

The additional relief material will be sent on a bigger scale than what was sent by aeroplane earlier.

"Necessary coordination for sending the ship and its arrival formalities in the Philippines are being carried out with the embassy of Philippines," the release said.

It said water purification capacity of the ship shall also be utilised to provide clean drinking water to the affected people.

India had earlier sent medicines, hygiene chemicals, tentage, blankets, tarpaulins and ready-to-eat meals through an Indian Air Force C-130 Super Hercules aircraft which reached the Philippines Saturday.

The effort was coordinated by the Integrated Defence Staff headquarters.
