Vietnam's Southern Province To Build 100 Houses For AO Victims
CA MAU, Jan 6 (Bernama) - Vietnam's southern Ca Mau province will build 100 homes for Agent Orange (AO) victims this year. Under a programme launched by the Association of Agent Orange Victims, each house will be built at 15 million dong (about US$700), Vietnam News Agency (VNA) reported. Association president Tran Thanh Phong said the organisation will raise cash from local governments and call on local residents to donate land. "We hoped the cause receives support from businesses and philanthropists too," Phong said. Phong said the biggest challenge faced by the association is those in need of homes could reach thousands. The programme was launched in early 2014 and has to date built 35 houses.
