Phnom Penh (VNA) – Relief aid has been presented to overseas Vietnamese (OVs) in Cambodia and local people victimised by recent floods in the three hardest-hit provinces of Kampong Cham, Kratie and Stung Treng.

About 800 sets were offered by a delegation of the Vietnamese Embassy in Cambodia, the Khmer-Vietnam Association in Cambodia and Vietnamese businesses operating in the country, which paid a visit to the localities on October 5-6.

Speaking with OVs in Kampong Cham province, head of the delegation Lai Xuan Chien affirmed that the Vietnamese Embassy always pays special attention to their living conditions in Cambodia and has arranged a fundraising campaign to support people in need.

Although the recent flooding caused huge property losses, the Vietnamese community recorded no casualties.

In nearly two months, torrential rains in Cambodian provinces including Preah Sihanouk and Ratanakiri have forced thousands of people to evacuate.
