Within the framework of the the Germany's Relief Coalition's emergency aid (Aktion Deutschland Hilft), World Vision Vietnam distributed cash to 738 households and food packages to 350 households affected by floods in 6 project communes from Huong Hoa District, the central province of Quang Tri.

With a total value of USD 68,540, these interventions supported 5,269 beneficiaries, of which 2,772 are children.

These activities belong to World Vision Vietnam's Response and Early Recovery Program in response to the widespread flooding and landslides caused by the recurrent rains and typhoons in Central Vietnam. With a budget of more than USD 1.4 million, this Program aims to address the most urgent needs with life-saving assistance and speed up life building process for more than 10,000 most vulnerable households in the affected areas of Quang Tri, Quang Nam, and Quang Ngai Provinces.

An estimated 1.5 million people have been affected by torrential rains, widespread flooding, and landslides triggered by five consecutive storms that have hit central Vietnam in the past year.

World Vision started working in Vietnam in 1988. Since then, the organization has implemented many relief and development programs, partnering with the Vietnamese government, other non-government organizations, and communities. World Vision's long-term development programs are currently operated in 18 cities and provinces throughout Vietnam.

Germany’s Relief Coalition – the strong alliance of 23 German relief organisations – provides emergency aid in the event of major disasters. These include earthquakes, tsunamis and hurricanes as well as epidemics like Ebola or cholera./.
