Vietnamese expats in Algeria support flood victims

Vietnamese expatriates in Algeria have joined hands to support people in the central and Central Highlands provinces that were devastated by floods caused by typhoon Damrey early this month.

The Vietnamese Embassy in Algeria launched fund-raising drive on November 22.

Officials and staff from the Embassy and Vietnamese agencies donated at least one-day’s salary to the fund.

According to Ambassador Pham Quoc Tru, the charity activity is expected to help flood victims recover and stabilise their lives soon.

Typhoon Damrey made landfall in Vietnam on November 4 with winds of up to 135 km/hour, 50 km south of Nha Trang (Khanh Hoa province), and became one of the worst storms to strike Vietnam’s southern coastal region in years. 

The typhoon and subsequent floods claimed 89 lives and left 18 missing and 174 others injured in central and Central Highlands localities as of November 7. 

More than 1,480 houses collapsed while 119,200 others were damaged. Nearly 8,000ha of rice and 14,600ha of other crops were flooded.
