NDO – During her working trip in the central province of Thua Thien Hue, Politburo member and Permanent National Assembly Vice Chairwoman Tong Thi Phong visited and presented gifts to local people who have been affected by the historical floods in the two districts of Phong Dien and Quang Dien.

She lauded the provincial authorities’ efforts to deal with the consequences of flooding and promptly provide food and other essentials items to flood-hit residents, as well as the efforts to rescue the missing construction workers at the Rao Trang 3 hydropower plant.

The NA leader asked Thua Thien Hue to arrange shelter for those whose homes were swept away while ensuring that no-one is left hungry or homeless after the floodwaters recede.

Sharing in the difficulties facing the local people, NA Vice Chairwoman Phong presented VND400 million to the districts of Quang Dien and Phong Dien.
