OneVietnam: The flood in early October, 2010 caused 112 dead and 150,000 displaced families in Ha Tinh and Quang Binh provinces in Vietnam. All infrastructures connecting to the region including roads, highway, and railroads are completely submerged making it very difficult to bring emergency supplies to the flood victims. There are many relief groups working to bring rice, fish sauce, and water to the victims. However, as the winter approaching, many of these families whose homes are severely damaged will be in need of blankets and warm clothings to survive the cold. Also, they will need mosquito nets as mosquitos grow rapidly in wet areas.
OneVietnam Network is hosting a Flood Relief Week to spread the message and connect Vietnamese around the world to help the flood victims.
