Indian community to host an event today thanking Northern Ireland for helping India during pandemic crisis

BELFAST: Members of the Indian community in Northern Ireland will host an event today to thank Health Minister Robin Swann for sending essential oxygen generators to India earlier this year as part of a COVID relief effort.

When India was suffering with the second wave of COVID-19, many nations across the world stepped in to help, and Northern Ireland did its bit by providing three oxygen generators the size of each shipping container in May.

ImageNationNI, a Belfast-based Indian community group, will hold a thanksgiving ceremony today at Sandy Row Community Centre, with special guests Minister Robin Swann, East Derry MLA Claire Sugden, and Belfast Lord Mayor Kate Nicholl.

Ms. Sugden was the one who mediated the concerns from the Indian community to the Department of Health during the pandemic.

ImageNation’s Sanjay Ghosh said: “India was badly hit this year. Northern Ireland stepped forward to assist with much needed oxygen generators. As Indian people living in Northern Ireland, we are proud to be part of this country and grateful for the help extended.”

Lord Diljit Rana, a Belfast businessman and Conservative peer, as well as the former head of the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce, said he was “deeply grateful” for the support and guidance provided to Indians throughout the pandemic.
