MOSCOW, October 14 (Itar-Tass) - Russia has given Kenya three medical modules to provide medical aid to persons, who were injured during the terrorist act in a trading centre on September 21, the Foreign Ministry reported.
“Medical modules (25,000 euro) will comprise medications, consumable products, medical equipment and medical devices for 200 surgeries and further treatment,” the ministry said.
Russia defrayed all expenses to form up modules and deliver them to Nairobi within the World Health Organisation (WHO) joint project in Emergency Readiness and Consequences Management. At least 3.6 million dollars have been provided to carry out the project.
“Russia’s decision to provide aid to Kenya was conditioned by friendly relations that united the peoples of both countries and proved Russia’s growing contribution to implementing humanitarian aid programmes within the U.N. and the WHO,” the ministry said.
Kenyan Health Minister James Macharia has expressed gratitude to Russia for its aid, which would make it possible to conduct urgent surgeries and medical treatment.
Al-Shabaab militants attacked the Kenyan mall on September 21. Law enforcers succeeded in neutralising terrorists on September 24. According to official data, a total of 67 people were killed and about 200 people were injured.
