The Australian government is providing AUD one million for humanitarian response to people suffering from the impacts of the severe flooding in Thua Thien Hue, Quang Tri, and Quang Nam provinces. The grant will be managed by the consortium of World Vision, ADRA and CARE, which are members of AHP.
This joint response is implemented for six months from December 2020 to May 2021 where most affected households will be assisted through an integrated package of interventions, including household kits, WASH kits, in-kind and cash transfer, and protection support. The proposed actions aim to provide assistance to those in the most urgent needs, in support of the local government response and in line with the Government request for relief assistance.
The response plan was based on the results of the joint Damage and Needs Assessment conducted between the government and humanitarian organizations, as well as national and sub-national government agencies. This response builds on the contribution from the initial humanitarian efforts back in October 2020.
After further assessment, the consortium notices the needs to provide the affected people with financial assistance on top of other supports to help them meet their immediate needs and fast track the recovery process.
“After a series of challenging weather events for Central Vietnam, ADRA is proud to be responding so quickly with CARE and World Vision with the support of the Australian Government to address the devastating impacts on households and communities. Together with our local partners and the participation of affected communities these areas will bounce back faster and be more resilient and ready to cope with emergency situations in the future,” said Quentin Campbell, Country Director of ADRA Vietnam.

“We are thankful for the support from the Australian Government which enables the AHP partners like us to promptly provide relief and recovery assistance to thousands of households in the central of Vietnam. After such a turbulent year in 2020, amid the COVID-19 pandemic and the severe flood, this assistance package will help not only responding to today’s emergencies but also preparing people for their tomorrow’s,” shared Le Kim Dung, Country Director of CARE International in Vietnam.
The AHP is also working with local communities to ensure that mechanisms are strengthened to support and protect vulnerable groups like women, girls, people and children with disabilities, and those vulnerable to abuse, exploitation and trafficking.
“Through consortia, we are committed to act fast to provide for the needs of the affected children and community with practical support to help them rebuild their lives,” stated World Vision Vietnam’s National Director Tren Thu Huyen.
As of January 24, the integrated support packages have reached nearly 14,500 affected people in the target areas in Thua Thien Hue, Quang Tri, and Quang Nam provinces.
