Donations of goods and cash worth a total of VND3.5 billion (USD167,865) have been presented to over 4,800 poor households in the Mekong Delta province of Dong Thap to help them overcome the aftermath of the devastating floods in 2011.

The donations were from the European Commission Humanitarian Aid Office (ECHO) and the aid agency Save The Children, then re-distributed by the Dong Thap Women’s Association.

The goods, including water filters, water tanks, decontamination tablets and nutritional additives were delivered to flood victims in three districts of Tan Hong, Hong Ngu and Tam Nong.

Of the beneficiaries, 1,400 households received VND1 million (USD47.96) each to help rebuild their lives.
