The project, called “Humanitarian Aid and Post-Flood Recovery in Central Vietnam”, will provide emergency assistance and help restore the livelihoods of 5,000 households severely affected by natural disasters in Tra Bui, Tra Duong, Tra Dong, Tra Son and Tra Giang communes, with a total value of over VND5.5 billion.

More than 900 gift packages worth VND1.2 million each, plastic buckets and hygienic tools will be provided to the affected households. The project also promotes communication on Covid-19 prevention and control as well as hygiene and clean water in these communes and provides training on planting and breeding for local residents.

The beneficiaries comprise households whose houses were damaged during the disasters, poor and near-poor households, households of people with disabilities and ethnic minority people.

On the same day, the Quang Nam Province Red Cross Society launched a housing project worth nearly VND4 billion, which is funded by World Vision, to repair the houses of 400 households affected by natural disasters in Nong Son, Phuoc Son and Nam Tra My districts.
