Under the PM’s decision, nearly 19,000 tonnes of rice from national reserves will be provided to 12 provinces of Cao Bang, Quang Ngai, Ha Tinh, Quang Tri, Quang Binh, Kon Tum, Binh Dinh, Lao Cai, Phu Yen, Thanh Hoa, Quang Nam, and Nghe An to support the poor.

Nghe An will receive the largest amount of donated rice (3,870 tonnes) as approximately 91,000 of the province’s households live under the poverty line.

Last week, the Government also donated over 4,000 tonnes of rice to the northern provinces of Ha Nam and Lai Chau to ensure a happy lunar New Year for all people.
