In recent days, flooding and landslides in Central Vietnam have left trail of destruction with complicated developments. Central Vietnam has been directly and indirectly affected by the historical Storm Linfa, Nangka and Saundel (Storm No. 6, 7 and 8 in 2020). Till October 19th 2020, flood water in Central Vietnam has submerged 179.900 houses, of which the number of inundated houses in Quang Tri accounts for 50% of total houses in the province. 132 people are reported dead and 27 people missing due to this natural disaster. More than 924 hectares of rice, 106.000 hectares of cashcrops, 461.000 livestock and poultry have been swallowed under the water. The total damage caused by the flood is estimated to be around VND 1,126 billion. Furthermore, as Storm No. 8 dissipated, Central Vietnam continued to suffer from Storm No. 9, named Molave, that landed in South Central provinces and wreaked havoc for more than 6 hours with the wind speed at 150 kilometer per hour. The arrival of this storm in Central Vietnam is reported to be the worst in the past 40 years, resulting in the elevation of damages on housing, livelihoods, people and proporties.
There have been more than 119,565 people evacuated from flooded areas, despite the fact that all of their accumulated properties, including house, rice field, vegetable crop, buffalo and cow have been washed away. The question on the unstable lives of the local residents, therefore, remained unanswered. More than 300 local schools have been heavily affected with classrooms destroyed, teaching and learning material flooded away, forcing more than 10,000 students in Thua Thien Hue and Quang Tri provinces to stay out of school.
Dear friends, epidemics, natural disasters, floods and storms are warnings from Mother Nature to human’s transgression. Climate justice is in the hands of every single one of us, not just the responsibility of governments, corporates and other individuals. The more people obtaining the understanding on the impacts of natural disasters and climate changes, as well as joining hands with us in this fight, the more we can become strong and resilient.
Aid for social protection program Foundation Vietnam (AFV) has worked in co–operation with Vietnamese government and local partners to launch the “Together, we shall come back stronger. Take action for Central Vietnam” programme. The entire amount donated by kind-hearted individual, corporate and organization donors will be utilized to help people in two provinces of Central Vietnam, which are Quang Tri and Thua Thien Hue, so that children can return to schools and people can recover their livelihoods and resettle post-disaster. The 1st phrase of the fundraising campaign will last from November 2nd – 30th 2020.With every single VND 1 raised from the campaign, AFV and AAV will match-fund another VND 1 to share the pain with our people in flooded areas.
