Hanoi afloat -staying migrants live in a makeshift house on one of the alluvial plains formed in the middle of Red River, which is considered the biggest river flowing across Hanoi.
It was cited on Vnexpress that these plains underneath Long Bien Bridge were homes to a community of over 100 people who had migrated from different localities to the capital, where the urban life with factories and the strong growth of the service sector allowed them to find manual jobs with decent income. Most had lost their household registration in their places of birth and were not registered residents of Hanoi.
Members in the community do manual work and mostly reside in floating homes, stuck together with buoys and patched with anything from canvas to an old blanket or discarded billboard.

Around a kilometer from the floating community near Long Bien, hundreds of migrants live in rented rooms the height of their heads. Residents here work as workers, porters, vendors, scrap collectors and do any type of manual labor at Long Bien Market, the largest vegetable wholesale zone in Hanoi.
Life got harder in February when the economy got pinched by the Covid-19 pandemic. One after another, restaurants across Hanoi suspended services as customers avoided large gatherings in fear of infection. As a result, toothpick orders were slashed by half, forcing the factory owner to cut its 30 employees’ salaries.
On March 26, Hanoi announced the closure of all non-essential services. A week later, Vietnam launched its social-distancing campaign, and it was decided the factory would be temporarily shut.
When Covid-19 hit Vietnam in late January, no one had never thought "it could be this serious."
However, they weren't left behind and hungry. Many attempts made on helping and assisting them overcome this period of time. That maynot be enough but partly lessen their difficulties and misery.
