Quang Tri (VNA) – The Vietnam Fatherland Front Committee in central Quang Tri province has presented approximately 7,300 gift packages to local people affected by the mass fish deaths.

They are fishermen’s households living in four coastal districts – Vinh Linh, Gio Linh, Trieu Phong and Hai Lang – of the province.

It was the first distribution of relief since the committee has called for support from sponsors for the affected fishermen.

The gift packages, worth 3.35 billion VND (150,000 USD), were donated by the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Central Committee, the Ministry of Planning and Investment, the Quang Tri Military Command and the brewing company Carlsberg Vietnam.-VNA
