Mercy Mission is pleased that the MV Captain Ali berthed at Chennai Port at 19:25 (Indian Time) on 2 July 2009 and unloading of the humanitarian relief commenced at 07:00 on 3 July. The unloading is expected to take 36 hours as the Indian Customs is checking each pallet with metal detectors and sniffer dogs.
After customs clearance the relief will be handed over to the Indian Red Cross Society (IRCS) who will in turn send it on to Sri Lanka Red Cross Society (SLRCS) for distribution to the internment camps in the North of the Island.
