Indian Navy's 'Operation Sahayta' to provide relief to the cyclone-hit African nation Mozambique, treated nearly 500 people at a medical camp, the Navy said in a statement. 

After Cyclone 'Idai' hit Mozambique last week, the Indian Navy deployed its ships Sujata, Sarathi and Shardul to carry out humanitarian and disaster relief activities. 

The medical camp at Gaura-Gaurathe was terminated based on UN Mission request, as all the 500 people of the village were provided medical treatment till March 22. The medical camp at Beira Harbour Master's office continued on March 23 and treated a total of 70 persons, the Navy said.

A Chetak helicopter also rescued four people from Buzi Island and dropped about 180 kg of relief material, including food and water, provided by the World Food Programme.
