This is a model of co-financing by the Government of Vietnam and UNDP under the project "Promoting human security - leaving no one behind through an integrated response with COVID-19 pandemic in Vietnam" funded by the Government of Japan to assist poor and near-poor people facing socio-economic impacts due to COVID-19.

The 325 workers directly participating in the project's activities in Bac Lieu province each received an average income of VND 4.6 million (approximately USD 200). This assistance benefitted an estimated 1,700 local people by enabling the workers and their households to meet their essential needs.
