The campaign, in collaboration with the National Humanitarian Portal 1400, will run until the end of December 21.

Supporters can join the programme by texting “UH” to 1403. Each text message will contribute 20,000 VND (0.86 USD) to the fund.

The same day, the VRCS received about 3 billion VND worth of donations from Medlatec Group, the VRCS chapter in Ha Nam province and the Garment 10 Corporation, among others.

As severe floods triggered by widespread heavy rains have affected the life of millions of residents in the central region in the recent two weeks, the VRCS Central Committee has provided emergency relief worth nearly 5 billion VND to the five provinces of Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, Quang Tri, Thua Thien-Hue and Quang Nam, and sent delegations to support residents in hardest-hit localities.

Earlier on October 13, the VRCS Central Committee called on all of its chapters to join a fundraising campaign which takes place until December 12 in a bid to support flood victims in the central region.

More than 62 billion VND has been raised so far.
