Over the past three years, the Central region of Viet Nam has suffered the worst floods in a century. Hundreds of lives were lost. Hundreds of thousands of people lost their homes and millions of acres of crops were destroyed. In responses to these disasters, VNAH and its sister organization, Health and Education Volunteers (HealthEd) reached out to the Vietnamese-American community to help. Our community responded and supported this effort very generously.
With the funds collected VNAH and HealthEd delivered more than 60 tons of rice and a 40-foot container of relief and medical supplies to the hardest hit victims in Hue, Da Nang and Quang Nam Provinces. In addition, in the areas suffering the greatest damage we have built two elementary schools.
