HA NOI (VNS)— A working team from the Vietnamese Embassy in the Philippines visited Tacloban City in Leyte province on Thursday to bring relief goods and money to two Vietnamese families stuck in the locality due to typhoon Haiyan.
As security in Tacloban is not yet assured, the families were asked to move to Ormoc, a city 105km away.
The team is also in touch with about 30 Vietnamese citizens in Naval and Biliran.
No deaths in the Vietnamese community in the Philippines have been reported.
As of November 15, all Vietnamese people in the hard-hit East Visayas in central Philippines were pronounced almost certainly safe.
The Vietnamese government sent initial emergency aid worth US$100,000 to the Philippines to help typhoon victims. — VNS
