Recently, the Central region of Vietnam has suffered severe and intense natural disasters. Many households have no houses and no livelihoods, so many hectares of rice, crops, and rubber are destroyed and when they will be restored is still unknown, the results of people’s working for a lifetime are swept away by the flood. Natural calamities have made the lives of people on this poor strip of land which are already in difficulty, become more difficult.
