The People’s Committee in the Mekong delta province of Dong Thap has decided to build residential blocks to provide shelters for 11,200 households including 8,800 households in the disaster-affected districts and 2,400 households in border crossings.

So far, over 7,713 households have received houses.

With the target to stabilize inhabitants in disadvantaged areas and offer employment to reduce the poverty in hopes of having good infrastructure to ensure inhabitants’ lives, the province authority will continue investing VND1,456 billion from 2016 to 2020 to build 29 new residential blocks in the area of 168 hectare offering houses  for 6,120 disadvantaged households.

The province administration petitioned the Prime Minister to increase the loan for building houses in new residential blocks up to VND30 million per household to help local residents to have better lives.
