More donations made for flood victims

71,000 USD has been donated by employees of the Government office, the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Information and Communications, and the Ministry of Finance to help the northwestern provinces hit by the recent floods and landslides.

President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Tran Thanh Man received the donations in Hanoi on Tuesday.

Minister and Head of the Government Office Mai Tien Dung said the money will quickly be allocated to flooded provinces to help the local people find accommodations, revive their production and economic development, and repair their schools so that their children can start the new academic year.

The same day, the Central Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control received 30 tons of disaster aid worth 230,000 USD from the ASEAN Coordinating Centre for Humanitarian Assistance.

The donations will be sent to flooded areas in Yen Bai, Son La, and Nghe An province on Wednesday.
