UNFPA offers additional support for women, girls in Central VN

VGP – The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in Viet Nam has made additional USD800,000 available to secure immediate support for women and girls in eight provinces and Da Nang city, bringing the total amount of UNFPA’s support to US$1.34 million to date.

To date, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in Viet Nam has provided US$1.34 million for flood-hit people in Central Viet Nam.

Earlier in November, 5,704 dignity kits were handed over to the Central Committee of the Viet Nam Farmers’ Union for distribution to women who experience or are at risk of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) in Viet Nam’s floods-affected provinces, namely Ha Tinh, Quang Binh and Quang Nam. 

The country’s central coastal region has suffered unprecedented flooding from prolonged downpours and successive typhoons since early October, resulting in more than 200 deaths recorded so far, and displacing thousands of people. 

At least 5.5 million people in the region have been affected, including over 1,300,000 women of reproductive age and more than 92,000 pregnant women. 

UNFPA is striving to assist the Government of Viet Nam in restoring and improving the lives of the flood victims, particularly the most vulnerable, said Ms. Naomi Kitahara, UNFPA Representative in Viet Nam.

UNFPA is present in over 150 countries, including Viet Nam, and works closely with national and local governments, United Nations agencies, community organizations, and many others to support the sexual and reproductive health needs of women and girls during emergency response. 

UNFPA delivers hygiene supplies, maternal health services, and deploys trained personnel.
