The campaign, in collaboration with the National Humanitarian Portal 1400 will continue until the end of December 21.
Vietnamese can join the program by sending "UH" to 1403 . Each text message will contribute 20000 VND (086 USD) to the fund.
On the same day, the Central Committee of the Vietnam Red Cross (VRCS) received around 3 billion VND in donations from the Medlatec group, the VRCS section of Ha Nam province (North) and the Confection Company 10 .
As severe flooding from widespread heavy rains affected the lives of millions of residents of the Center over the past two weeks, the VRCS Central Committee provided emergency aid worth nearly $ 5 billion VND to the five provinces of Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, Quang Tri, Thua Thien-Hue and Quang Nam, and sent missions to support residents of the hardest hit localities.
Earlier on October 13 the VRCS Central Committee called on all its branches to join a fundraising campaign running until December 12 to support flood victims in the center. In total, over 62 billion VND has been collected so far.
