HCM CITY (VNS)— NGO Habitat for Humanity Viet Nam on Tuesday handed over a safe house meant for residents living in areas affected by seasonal floods.

The 40sq.m house built at a cost of US$5,000 was gifted to a poor family in Tien Giang Province's Hau My Bac B Commune whose house is situated near a canal and a dyke and is often affected by floods.

The house was built based on the winning design in the "Sustainable Shelter in an Age of Climate Change and Disasters" competition organised by HFHV and Siam Cement Group in 2012-2013. — VNS
