Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam Diary Products Joint Stock Company (Vinamilk) has offered 3 billion VND (132,000 USD) donated by its 6,000 managers and workers to support flood-hit local residents in Yen Bai, Hoa Binh and Thanh Hoa provinces to help them repair and rebuild their houses.

Alongside, the company also provided free nutrition consultancy and milk to about 1,000 students, parents and teachers in local areas.

Vinamilk has also sent its nutrition experts to the provinces to help improve the communities’ nutrition knowledge and practices to protect their health.

Hoa Binh, Yen Bai and Thanh Hoa were seriously devastated by recent torrential rains and floods. The localities suffered heavy losses in both humans and property.

In September, Vinamilk presented 116,000 milk packs equivalent to 1 billion VND (44,000 USD) to disaster-hit children in central Ha Tinh, Quang Binh and Nghe An provinces.

A month later, the firm also presented 400 million VND (17,600 USD) to poor households in Hanoi’s Chuong My and My Duc districts that experienced severe floods.

Last year, Vinamilk also donated 4.6 billion VND (202,600 USD) in aid to flood-hit locals in northern and south central regions.-VNA
