The funding, which has been channelled through World Vision, will provide 20,000 bottles of clean water and 1,250 water tanks to local residents of the districts of Ham Thuan and Bac Binh.

In a statement, Le Van Duong of World Vision, said his organization will continue assisting residents of the district until the end of the drought.

From mid-June to July, World Vision will fund other famine relief and water purification projects as well as administer the UNDP project and the acquisition of water containing equipment for residents of the two districts, said Mr Duong.

Earlier, World Vision gave US$80,000 to 5,000 citizens of the Ham Thuan Bac and Bac Binh districts in Binh Thuan Province, as part of a long-term development program to help needy people lift themselves out of poverty.
