Beneficiaries will be women, disabled children, and the elderly in flood-hit areas in central Quang Binh, Quang Tri, and Quang Nam provinces and north-central Ha Tinh province.

KOICA is coordinating with other international organisations such as the UN Development Programme, UNICEF, the World Health Organisation (WHO), the US Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to support people in flood-hit areas and help them stabilise their lives.
