Ba Ria – Vung Tau, (VNA)
– Poor households in the Mekong Delta provinces of Ca Mau and Ben Tre will be provided with disaster-resilient houses funded by Tan Dai Hung Plastic JSC.

An agreement on the funding was signed between representatives from Tan Dai Hung, the Ba Ria – Vung Tau Urban Sewerage and Development One Member Limited Company – the constructor, the Directorate for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control (DNDPC) under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, and officials from Ben Tre and Ca Mau.

Under the agreement, Tan Dai Hung will donate 12 billion VND to build 40 houses of this kind for disadvantaged people in the two localities.  

The company’s move is in response to DNDPC’s programme to call for support from enterprises and the community for building disaster-resistant houses for poor families living in natural disasters and flood-prone areas nationwide.

According to Hoang Duc Thao, General Director of the Ba Ria – Vung Tau Urban Sewerage and Development One Member Limited Company, his firm will use super-light non-ferrous concrete building technology in the construction of these houses.

At the signing ceremony, DNDPC General Director Tran Quang Hoai asked the beneficiary localities’ officials to closely work with the donor and constructor to well perform the project.

He hoped that there will be more enterprises joining hands to support poor households in areas vulnerable to natural disasters in the coming time.-VNA
