NDO – The Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Committee in Ho Chi Minh City has received money and goods worth a total of over VND70.3 billion as of November 2 to support people who were affected by the recent floods and storms in the central provinces.

Of the figure, more than VND65 billion is in cash while the rest is in the form of goods and necessities.

On the afternoon of November 2, the City’s VFF Committee continued to receive support from many other agencies and enterprises such as Ho Chi Minh City Power Corporation (VND500 million), Binh Dan Hospital and the City’s Post Office.

In addition to the early relief efforts during the floods and storms, the donations from organisations, enterprises and sponsors will be allocated to support the central provinces in overcoming damages after the natural disaster.

In addition to donation activities, the Ho Chi Minh City Youth Union formed delegations of youth volunteers to help flood-hit people in various fields, such as the repair of electricity and water services, building houses and providing free medical checks-up and treatment.
