Red Cross Society of China supports Vietnamese flood victims

The Red Cross Society of China (RCSC) has presented 100,000 USD to help flood victims in Vietnam’s central region.

Chinese Ambassador to Vietnam Hong Xiaoyong handed over the sum to the Vietnam Red Cross Society (VRC) in Hanoi on January 6. 

It is the second time the RCSC has offered support to Vietnamese flood victims. Previously, it also donated the same amount in early November 2016, after the VRCS issued an urgent appeal at home and abroad for help to residents in central localities hit by serious floods since mid-October 2016. 

The VRC has so far raised VND48.4 billion (US$2.1 million) for flood victims. 

Also last year, the RCSC provided US$50,000 for residents hit by drought and saline intrusion in Vietnam’s central region, the Central Highlands and Mekong Delta. 

Over the past years, the RCSC has maintained cooperation with the VRC via personnel training. 

Recently, it offered 700,000 Chinese yuan (US$100,900) to the VRC to help with the building of a model to enhance community capacity of dealing with health contingencies, improve clean water supply and response to climate change.
