Hanoi (VNA) – The non-governmental organisation Habitat for Humanity Vietnam (HFH Vietnam) in collaboration with the Samsung C&T Corporation and Habitat for Humanity Korea have recently launched a project to improve community ability and natural disaster response.

The programme, being implemented from March 2016 to February 2017 in Nga My commune in Phu Binh district of the northern province of Thai Nguyen, aims to help 120 disadvantaged local households improve their living conditions through clean water and community and disaster prevention works.

It will also build new classrooms along with a clean water system for a local primary school, as well as provide information technology equipment for a secondary school.

HFH Vietnam, a branch of Habitat for Humanity International, started operating in January 2001 in Da Nang city in the central coastal region.

As of June 2015, HFH Vietnam has enabled more than 12,823 low-income Vietnamese families to improve their living conditions.

In addition, the organisation has provided training in disaster preparedness, financial education, hygiene practices, and construction skills, among others, to more than 62,749 individuals./.
