Quang Ngai (VNA) – The Vietnam Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Industry and Trade (VietinBank) on March 15 unveiled its joint project with the central Quang Ngai People’s Committee on building 150 charity houses for local needy residents.

Accordingly, the bank will inject 7.5 billion VND (324,101 USD) into the project, and this means each selected household in the central province will receive 50 million VND (2,160 USD).

The majority of the recipients are located in the districts of Ba To, Minh Long, Son Ha, Son Tay, Tay Tra, and Tra Bong.

Notably, Na Ta Kot resettlement area in Tra Bong’s Tra Lam commune will get the largest support from the sum to distribute among 45 local families, who are currently living in makeshift houses.

Nguyen Cao Phuc, head of the provincial chapter of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee, said it is a meaningful programme to help the poor households secure permanent houses.

He asked local authorities to regularly monitor the construction and mobilise residents’ contribution of working days to building these houses.-VNA
