Phu Yen (VNA) – A delegation of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Central Committee visited and presented gifts to people in the flood-hit south central province of Phu Yen on January 13.

The delegation, led by Vice President and General Secretary Tran Thanh Man, presented each affected household 52 million VND (2,304 USD) to restore their houses and prepare for the upcoming Lunar New Year holiday.

Man proposed local authorities continue mobilising resources to help local flood victims while monitoring the distribution of aid to ensure it reaches those in need.     

On the occasion, the VFF also transferred 30 billion VND (1.32 million USD) to flood-hit central provinces, in which Phu Yen received 3.5 billion VND (155,085 USD).

Torrential rains and floods in the last two months of 2016 in Phu Yen province claimed 12 lives and caused damage worth over 600 billion VND (26.5 million USD).-VNA
