Ms. Nguyễn Thị Hoa (Vĩnh Ninh commune, Quảng Ninh district, Quảng Bình province), a single woman who has chronic kidney failure, was so touched when she got the money. She said “My house was fully under flood water except for the roof. My old, termites house is still under half of a meter now. I am so grateful for what CRD has done in this hard time’. She still seemed shocked when experiencing such a big flood for the first time in the age of 70.

It is not a large amount of money but the sympathy and compassion of CRD members who have spent a part of their salaries and the operational fund with the hope to help difficult people recover.
