Greek EU NAVFOR Warship HS HYDRA Provides Medical Aid in Mombasa

The Greek EU NAVFOR warship HS HYDRA used its recent port visit in Mombasa, Kenya, to support the Coast Province General Hospital and a local orphanage.

 In line with local support for countries of the Horn of Africa, HS HDRA provided medical supplies to the hospital. Medical supplies remain  a scarce source in Eastern Africa.

Some members of the crew of HS HYDRA, which joined ATALANTA earlier this February, also handed charity gifts to a local orphanage, The Bee Hive Children’s Home, helping to bring some joy and hope to those children, who need it most.
