The Embassy of New Zealand in Hanoi said the funds include NZD150,000 for United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and NZD20,000 for World Vision relief efforts, according to the VNS.

“Alongside the relief work of the Vietnamese Government, this assistance seeks to help families meet basic needs and to help them begin rebuilding their livelihoods. It is an example of New Zealand’s ongoing commitment to supporting the people of Vietnam,” said New Zealand Ambassador to Vietnam Wendy Matthews.

According to a Government report to the National Assembly on November 2, 235 people in the central region have been listed as dead and missing from typhoons and floods, which have also caused estimated economic losses of about VND17 trillion./.
