A working team from the Vietnamese Embassy in the Philippines on November 14 reached Tacloban city in Leyte province to bring relief goods and money to two Vietnamese families stuck in the locality due to typhoon Haiyan.

As security in Tacloban has yet been ensured, the families were asked to move to Ormoc, a city 105 km away.

The team has also got in touch with about 30 Vietnamese citizens in Naval and Biliran, who are reportedly in reasonable health.

No deaths in the Vietnamese community in the Philippines have been reported so far.

As of November 15, all Vietnamese people in the hard-hit East Visayas, central Philippines, were pronounced almost certainly safe.

The Vietnamese government has also sent initial emergency aid worth 100,000 USD to the Philippines to help typhoon victims.-VNA
