Due to climate change’s consequences, in recent years, the Central coastal provinces in Vietnam often suffer from heavy rains causing floods and erosion, affecting locals’ daily life, especially after the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to support local residents, in 2022, the Vietnam Red Cross Society Central Committee launched a program themed “Safety for needy fishermen” in the 2022-2027 period.

Handing over a house to a needy household

According to Chairwoman of the Thua Thien Hue provincial Red Cross Society, the province is one of the first localities across the country to implement such program. The provincial Red Cross Society has quickly built plans and effectively implemented activities to help needy fishermen access the support, thereby stabilizing their life and reducing poverty.

Accordingly, 100 households from 18 communes in four coastal districts have been given VND 5 billion to build 100 new houses.

Many people are supported to build house

In the coming time, the organization will continue conduct practical activities to help needy fishermen, encouraging them to continue to go fishing at sea, contributing to firmly protecting national sovereignty over sea and islands.

In fact, the implementation of the program in the locality has faced many difficulties. However, the Thua Thien Hue provincial Red Cross Society, together with the locals, has overcome difficulties to achieve set targets, motivating needy fishermen to soon stabilize their life.
