PANO – Recently, Vu Quang District in Ha Tinh Province has struggled against two historic floods. The water level raised suddenly and quickly, submerging all properties of the people who reside there.

However, Vu Quang District Party Secretary and the local authority determined not to let the people remain in a hungry and thirsty situation. As a result, they made efforts to reach homes in the hardest-hit areas to provide them with relief aid.

Nguyen Thanh Son, Vu Quang District Party Secretary, said that the second flood came quickly but they had provided the people with food and drinks right after the first one so that local people could live on them.

Moreover, the district had paid VND 350 million for its communes to buy instant noodle and drinking water for use in the event of natural disaster. These foods and drinks had been used efficiently during the floods, ensuring that local people would not run out.

“In the recent two days, we mobilised all the boats we had to carry 2,500 boxes of instant noodle and 1,000 boxes of drinking water to the people in isolated areas of Duc Giang, Duc Bong, Duc Linh, An Phu, Huong Tho, Duc Lien etc.,” said Mr. Son.

Fortunately, Vu Quang has been supported by people throughout the country. According to the district’s Fatherland Front Committee, Mr Tran Binh Lam, by October 18th, 40 groups had transferred relief aids to the district.

The committee has received more than 6,000 boxes of instant noodle, VND 837 million, 500 blankets, 670 kilograms of rice, 600 mineral water tanks and other necessary appliances.

This relief aid was said to be sent directly to the people as soon as possible.

Each amount relating to relief aid to the Vu Quang people will help them bear their difficulties.
