Quang Ngai (VNA)Fishermen and students in Nghia An commune in the central coastal province of Quang Ngai were presented navigation charts and documents that provide knowledge of storm avoidance at a ceremony held on March 16.

The event was jointly organised by the Central Region Natural Disaster Prevention and Support Fund and the Prudential Assurance Vietnam.

At the ceremony, 3,000 navigation charts were given to fishermen, helping them keep tracks of the paths of tropical storms as well as supporting rescue activities at sea.

The organisers also presented 15,000 notebooks with instructions for disaster readiness, self-protection skills and practical survival methods to overcome natural disasters.

The programme is part of the Disaster Risk Reduction project, funded by the Prudential Vietnam, in response to a call by the Government to raise preparedness to cope with natural disasters.-VNA
