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./.
