IAF helicopters dropped 600kg of food packets in flood-affected regions of Telangana

Continuing with their unflinching endeavour in providing relief to the marooned
and grief-stricken populace in the flood-affected regions of Telangana, the
helicopters of the Indian Air Force dropped around 600 kgs of food packets on
Friday. The food packets included relief material contributed by the members of the
Air Force Family Welfare Association, popularly known as Sanginis.

The IAF personnel, apart from being the guardian of Indian aerospace, have
always been at the forefront in providing Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster
Relief (HADR) whenever nature wreaks havoc. In the instant case, the helicopters
from Air Force Station Hakimpet in Hyderabad, which provide cutting-edge helicopter
flying training to the IAF pilots, are specially tasked to undertake such an important
commitment. They were instrumental in evacuating six people stranded atop a JCB
in flood-stricken Nainpaka village in the Jayashankar Bhupalpally district of
Telangana on 27 July. The rescue operations will continue in the state, till the
normalcy returns.
