A a true story of heroism by the ship’s crew who faced tremendous odds in face of adversity and eventually managed to sail out of war torn region of Kuwait, with 722 Indians expatriates which included 265 women (9 of them pregnant) and children and brought them safely to Dubai, in one of the biggest sea evacuation of refugees on a cargo vessel, designed to carry only a complement of 40 persons. This is a glaring example of the collective efforts of Indians from all walks of life who came together selflessly, in making this humanitarian mission a resounding success.
This humanitarian mission was carried out free of costs.
