Nautical Aliya docks on Thursday, food flotilla mission a success
ANDAMAN SEA: After almost a month at sea, the 184 food flotilla mission volunteers on Nautical Aliya will finally be arriving home. The participants from more than 30 local and international non-governmental organisations (NGOs) including the organising bodies from Kelab Putera 1Malaysia (KP1M) and Malaysian Consultative Council for Islamic Organisation (Mapim) is expected to port at the Boustead Cruise Terminal in Port Klang on Thursday morning.
Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein is expected to be at the cruise terminal for a welcome home ceremony and to greet the flotilla heroes. The flotilla left the same cruise terminal on Feb 3 and sailed thousands of miles across the open sea to Myanmar and Bangladesh, bringing 2,300 tonnes of humanitarian aid supplies for the Rohingya refugees.
On Feb 9, the ship arrived at the Myanmar International Terminal Thilawa in Yangon to offload 500 tonnes of the aid for the displaced Rohingyas in the Rakhine state, Myanmar.
