Relief of Suffering on Kahah III
by Kalto Moxin
Turmoil continues to engulf the surface of Kahah III after the devastation inflicted by the Equilibrium of Mankind earlier this month.
On the surface below, countless are struggling to cope with the tragedy that came before them after an Avatar-class Titan entered orbit and fired down six shots from it’s doomsday weapon. The destructive power against other capital ships alone is awe inducing, against a planetary colony is horrifying.
As you read this, on that colony surface is someone suffering due to the mayhem, infrastructure evaporated, family members turned to ash, sources of food razed. The list continues to go on and on.
In this time of crisis however, many have answered the call for help and have rushed to the scene to supply aid. First to lead the charge on humanitarian efforts after the smoked clear would be the Khanid region’s own Duchy of Fekhoya who have begun running a humanitarian campaign in the system to provide as much aid and assistance to the suffering population as quickly as possible. While providing their own supplies, other parties have already stepped forward donating their own stocks to contribute to the relief effort. Prominent Capsuleer Alliance Khimi Harah [LUMEN] have arrived on scene, bringing a wealth of medical goods and foodstuff and an equally impressive donation of pharmaceutical goods from Sorn Interstellar Industries.
“Lady Liliana Qadriyah Llŷr, Holder of the Archipelagic State of Llŷr on Nafrivik III, a LUMEN member, has taken point on LUMEN’s efforts. She is doing constant runs to Kahah III and Amarr, bringing supplies, medical personnel and has an in-orbit hospital ship on constant station. She is also using drop shuttles to take supplies etc to ground hospitals and is also evacuating refugees and survivors to a specialised dome settlement on Nafrivik III, at least temporarily. LUMEN has supplied SAR equipment and relief supplies in furtherance of her efforts. LUMEN, through Zekaien Hakotama among others, is also coordinating with other actors, such as the Disciples of Night, and has provided a donation to them as well so as to spread out efforts.”

“we are proud to be working alongside Khimi Harah [LUMEN] and others from around the cluster to provide aid and relief to those affected by the Heretic Chakaid’s bombardment of the planet. Alongside of Khimi Harah we are also Hunting down EoM Heretics to help ensure another atrocity like this does not happen. Those that are assisting with Efforts in helping and saving lives as best as possible here I thank you from the bottom of my heart”
~ Duchess Ithi Deritan, Duchy of Fekhoya
Even now the needs of the masses are been unmet despite the powerful support of sympathetic Capsuleers. Enter aid camps set up are being swarmed by those in need of assistance, reports of fights breaking out for space aboard medevac transports and even concerns of a growing black market on the planet’s surface with some of the donations being sent planetside turning up stolen or ‘lost’ under uncertain circumstances.
To expand upon the humanitarian infrastructure to improve efficiency, the Duchy of Fekhoya have anchored a Raitaru in orbit of Kahah III to act as a platform for more rapid transfer of supplies and medevaced residents. Duchess Ithi Deritan declares the structure temporary to the situation and will be unanchored once it’s served it’s purpose.
Efforts thus far have absolutely eased some tension for Kahah III’s surviving residents, with donations thus far preventing any widespread starvation and the medical backbone of the effort has retained the life of many victims of the attack. There are reports however of those injured in muggings coming into aid camps, potentially adding creditability to the growing black market rumor, or a showcase of desperation plaguing the situation.
Should anymore developments occur, they will be reported here.
