The Japanese government has donated the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) a fire engine.
A tweet posted by NDMA on Friday said Japanese Aid donated the fire engine to MNDF Fire and Rescue Service as part of the “Grant Assistance to Grass-Roots Human Security Project (GGP).”
On Friday night, the fire engine was cleared out of customs and will be officially handed over by NDMA to MNDF Fire and Rescue.
The Government of Japan has made a number of beneficial contributions to the NDMA. Discussions were conducted between Japanese Ambassador to Maldives, Keiko Yanai, and NDMA, and agreements to facilitate the Maldives were signed.
