HÀ NỘI — The Việt Nam Red Cross Society (VRSC) will send emergency aid worth VNĐ330 million (US$13,830) in cash and kind to help flood victims in the two central provinces of Nghệ An and Hà Tĩnh.

The VRSC Central Committee on Saturday announced that Nghệ An will receive VNĐ100 million and 200 relief packages while Hà Tĩnh will get VNĐ50 million and 100 flood relief boxes, to be distributed to families with injured victims, or those whose houses and crops destroyed and seriously damaged by flooding. 

The Investment and Trade Consultancy Co Ltd (Intraco) has sent some 1,000 water filters worth VNĐ1.1 billion through the VRSC to flood-hit families in Nghệ An.

On September 29, the VRCS Central Committee provided assistance in cash and kind worth VNĐ640 million for people in Quảng Nam and Quảng Ngai central provinces affected by Typhoon Noru, the fourth one to enter the East Sea this year.
