In October 2010 GOPA Consultants deployed immediate emergency relief to several thousand flood victims in Vietnam’s central province Ha Tinh where torrential rain has brought two consecutive severe floods to one of the poorest and most disaster-prone parts of the country. In its relief efforts GOPA reached out to the most vulnerable groups such as pregnant women, nursing mothers and female-headed households. Life west’s, rice, baby food and children clothing’s were distributed for the flood-affected people.
The flood disaster in Ha Tinh, with approx 80% of the province heavily flooded, affected over half million people. Many rural households are confronted with total devastation of their agricultural land and produce, their property and livestock facing now grave economic consequences for many months.
On behalf of GTZ, since 2007 GOPA Consultant implements in joint partnership with IFAD a poverty alleviation project for the rural based population in Ha Tinh. In concert with its local and international project partners, GOPA resident staff in Ha Tinh will now focus through its continuous project efforts on urgently warrant post-flood rehabilitation interventions.
