On behalf of the Thai government, the delegation presented USD 20,000 in cash along with food and medicine to aid local people, especially poor households with disabled people, in Minh Lap commune of the province’s Dong Hy district.
Hosting the delegation, member of the Party Central Committee and Secretary of the Thai Nguyen Party Committee Tran Quoc To expressed his gratitude to the Thai guests for their support to locals victimised by the recent rains and flooding which, he said, helps them overcome difficulties and stabilise their lives.
Earlier, heavy downpours on September 9-10 in Thai Nguyen claimed four lives, injured one, and submerged nearly 1,100 houses.
Floods triggered by the rains also submerged 670 ha of crops and many roads, causing losses estimated at over VND20 billion (USD857,800 ).
