Government agencies support flood victims
President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Central Committee Nguyen Thien Nhan on October 24 received money donated by governmental agencies to support flood victims in the central region to overcome consequences.
Accordingly, the Government Office supported 360 million VND (16,200 USD), the Voice of Vietnam (621 million VND or 27,945 USD), and the Ministry of Planning and Investment (450 million VND or 20,250 USD).
Nhan said the recent flood and maritime environmental incidents in the central provinces have made the local life in the central provinces more difficult.
The prompt assistance of agencies, businesses and individuals is significant to help the victims surmount difficulties, he added.
He pledged the money will be delivered to localities as scheduled.
As of October 14, the VFF Central Committee received over 6 billion VND (270,000 USD) donated to support flood victims in Nghe An, Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, Quang Tri, and Thua Thien-Hue provinces.
