HO CHI MINH CITY, July 5, 2016 -- U.S. Ambassador Ted Osius announced today that the U.S. Government has provided an additional $500,000 in emergency assistance to help those who have been affected by the worst drought and saltwater intrusion Vietnam has faced in decades.

“This additional aid will support vital programs to ensure that tens of thousands of people in need can harvest rainwater and have access to safe drinking water,” said Ambassador Osius. “It further demonstrates America’s steadfast commitment to helping the Vietnamese people as they recover the repercussions of this devastating drought and other impacts of climate change.”

Twenty-two of Vietnam’s 63 provinces have been impacted by the recent drought and subsequent intrusion of saltwater into the Mekong River Delta, which are negatively impacting people’s livelihoods. With this new funding, the U.S. Agency for International Development is working with the Vietnam Red Cross to provide water containers, saltwater filtration systems, water purification tablets, and disseminating good sanitation and hygiene practices to help prevent the spread of diseases.
