Gia Lai tackling aftermath of storms

Recent storms, including Nangka and Molave, caused major losses in the Central Highlands province of Gia Lai. The province’s Military Command has sent thousands of officers and soldiers to villages and communes to help people overcome the devastation the storms wrought.



Kbang district was the hardest-hit locality in Gia Lai province. Storm Molave damaged more than 200 houses, isolated 3 villages, and damaged 530 ha of crops. The Military Command of Gia Lai province sent forces to the district to help people repair their houses and stabilise their lives.

With the support of soldiers, areas at risk from landslides were identified and damaged houses repaired, ensuring that local people had safe shelter.

Efforts during these difficult times have tightened the ties between the Vietnamese army and local people./.
