Quang Nam (VNA) – The central province of Quang Nam decided to put aside over 5.6 billion VND (246,000 USD) for helping poor households build flood-resistant houses.

The money will be used to finance 1,936 poor households, 427 of which are in extremely disadvantaged areas.

Nong Son, Dai Loc, Duy Xuyen, Nui Thanh and Thang Binh districts record a large number of beneficiaries.

Dinh Van Thu, Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said the action is one of efforts to implement the government’s policy on assisting poor households in building flood-resistant houses.

In order to ensure the transparency of the programme, the provincial People’s Committee asked the People’s Committees of districts, towns and cities to be accountable for the management and use of the allocated capital.-VNA
