Natural disasters had claimed 280 lives and caused total losses of approximately VND 29.9 trillion in Vietnam from the beginning of 2020 to mid-November, according to a report by the National Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control.

They had also injured 856 people and left 66 missing. Torrential rain, floods, and landslides had destroyed 3,420 houses, damaged over 327,700, and submerged nearly 509,800, affecting the livelihoods of millions of people.

In order to continue supporting people affected by floods in the central region, Plan International Vietnam on February 3 conducted relief work in Truong Son and Kim Thuy communes in the central province of Quang Binh. This relief package focuses on providing essential food for 646 households (3080 people).

Due to the complicated developments of the COVID-19 epidemic, people as well as all Plan staff have strictly followed the anti-epidemic regulations such as keeping a safe distance, disinfecting hands and wearing masks.

Plan hopes that the relief goods this time will partly help people in Quang Binh have a warm and joyful Lunar New Year (Tet) holiday, the most important festival of Vietnamese people in a year.
