Emergency Assistance for Flood Disaster in Vietnam

October 22, 2010

In view of humanitarian aspects as well as the friendship and cooperation between Japan and Viet Nam, the Government of Japan has decided to extend emergency relief goods (blankets, electric generators, water purifiers, portable jerry cans etc.) equivalent to 20 million yen (about 213,000 USD) to Viet Nam, in response to the request of the Government of Viet Nam after the large-scale flood disaster caused by a series of typhoons which have hit the coastal areas of Central Vietnam since early October.

The Government of Japan hopes that this assistance will contribute to the improvement of the living conditions of the flood-affected people.
