Hanoi's Party chief ordered the allocation of VND7 billion (US$305,000) from Hanoi’s relief fund to the five hardest hit localities.

Hanoi has attached importance to launching activities to support flood-affected people in the central region and Central Highlands, Kinh Te & Do Thi quoted Chairwoman of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Committee of Hanoi Nguyen Lan Huong as saying at a meeting on October 16.

Ms. Huong said that the Hanoi committee of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) issued a communiqué during the 17th Party Congress of Hanoi on October 13 calling on the city’s citizens to support their compatriots in the central region who have been hit hard by flooding in recent days.

Prolonged heavy rains triggered by storms Linfa and Nangka have resulted in severe floods in the central Vietnam and Central Highlands, causing dozens of deaths. The regions have also suffered heavy losses in terms of crops, aquaculture, and livestock and poultry farming.

Ms. Huong urged officials, cadres, collectives, individuals, businesses, and philanthropists to lend a helping hand to the flood victims, supporting them to restore production and stabilize lives. Donations can be sent to Hanoi’s relief fund run by the VFF’s Hanoi chapter or to its headquarters at No.29 Ly Thuong Kiet street, Hoan Kiem district, Hanoi.

At the 17th Party Congress of Hanoi, Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Vuong Dinh Hue ordered the allocation of VND7 billion (US$305,000) from Hanoi’s relief fund to the five hardest hit localities which are Thua Thien-Hue, Quang Tri, Quang Nam, Quang Binh, and Ha Tinh provinces.
