Recently, the Union of Friendship Organizations of the central coastal province of Quang Nam, the Red Cross Society of Phuoc Son district and the People's Committee of Phuoc Loc commune held a ceremony to hand over 6 houses funded by the Children's Education Foundation (CEF) of Australia for families who lost nearly all of their assets in landslides during the Molave Storm at the end of 2020.

Through the Quang Nam Union of Friendship Organizations' campaign to support needy people to overcome the consequences of natural disasters in 2020, CEF has sponsored VND 600 million (USD 26.130) to support the construction of new houses for 6 affected households in Phuoc Loc commune, Phuoc Son district. Each household received VND 100 million.

All 6 houses funded by CEF were completed on July 7. They are solidly built in secure locations arranged by local authorities, so families can feel secure in their new CEF-supported home.

In 2020, the Australian charity organization also supported 93 households and students in Phuoc Thanh and Phuoc Loc communes, Phuoc Son district with the amount of VND 95 million (USD 4.138).
