Continuing to join hands with the Vietnam's Government, communities and local partners in the COVID-19 pandemic response and recovery, from December 14 to 18, World Vision Vietnam has distributed 248 water tanks, 500 cans of cooking oil for more than 700 households with vulnerable/malnourished children under 5 in four project communes (Pu Nhung, Rang Dong, Phinh Sang and Ta Ma) in Tuan Giao District, Dien Bien Province.
Together with the distribution, Tuan Giao District Medical Center also guided people on how to use water tanks properly and effectively, contributing to the prevention of the pandemic. After the communication session, 248 households signed a pledge to build toilets and hand washing areas with clean water by January 31, 2021.
World Vision Vietnam’s COVID-19 Response and Recovery Program has helped households with vulnerable children improve their nutritional status and health through improved access and better use of clean water.
In Tua Chua District of Dien Bien, USD 74,348 funded by the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) to reduce COVID-19 impact has been utilized to provide prompt support to families whose livelihoods are severely affected.
As the result, 336 families received food aid packages of rice, cooking oil, soup powder, and drinking milk; 40 seriously malnourished children received a total of 9,559 fortified food products (Hebi) developed by the National Institute of Nutrition.
