Over the past two months, more than 1,000 homes in Dien Bien Dong, Dien Bien province have been either built or repaired for local poor families.
Le Thanh Do, Chairman of the Dien Bien Provincial People’s Committee, revealed, the COVID-19 pandemic caused a lot of difficulties to the construction while the mountainous terrain makes the transportation of building materials even more difficult as local families live in remote mountainous areas of which have no water or power.
Thanks to the joint efforts of the Provincial Police Department, Military Command, Northwest Mobile Police Regiment and People's Committee of Dien Bien Dong district and donation from banks and companies, after 53 days, 988 new houses have been built while 52 others have been repaired.
