The supported families all live below the poverty line or members of the ethnic groups spread across ten localities, including the cities of Da Lat and Bao Loc, and the districts of Lac Duong and Don Duong.

The agricultural subsidies they will receive amount to 10.3 billion VND (480,000 USD).

More than 1.5 billion VND (69,904 USD) of the sum will come to Lac Duong, where coffee plantations suffered serious frost damage recently. The money will cover 100 percent of the cost to plant over 118 hectares.-VNA
