Quang Tri (VNA) – The World Vision International (WVI) in Vietnam will launch development projects worth nearly 8 million USD in its non-refundable aid in the central province of Quang Tri from 2018 to 2022. 

Under a cooperation agreement signed with the provincial People’s Committee on October 26, the regional development programme worth over 5.3 million USD will offer child protection, nutrition and health care, especially for vulnerable children. 

Meanwhile, the 2.6 million USD micro-finance programme will provide credit, savings and insurance for locals to expand production and trade. 

From 2017-2019, the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and the WVI in the Republic of Korea, via the WVI in Vietnam, granted a fund of nearly 1 million USD to the province’s Trieu Phong district to develop a value chain of natural farming-based produce. 

The project benefited 1,000 poor households in five communes of Trieu Trung, Trieu Tai, Trieu Son, Trieu Trach and Trieu Thuong, thereby increasing farmers’ income.-VNA
