Over 7 million people in the area have been affected and thousands of hectares of rice and crops have been damaged. Since October 16, 2020, as consequences of tropical depressions, the torrential downpour has returned and overlapping floods have resulted in heavy losses to human lives and production in the area.

Given serious aftermaths caused by tropical depressions and floods, the Party and the Government of Vietnam have been expediting efforts and measures in overcoming the consequences and mitigate negative impacts on the disaster-ridden people.

On behalf of the Government of Vietnam, the Central Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control - Vietnam Disaster Management Authority will receive the above goods and deliver them to the flood-ridden people in Thua Thien Hue province.
