is the average number of storms Vietnam has to bear annually.
4.13 million

“Floods after floods, storms after storms”

Thong ke

The historic flood occurring in the Central Region of Vietnam in 2020 was the result of 9 big storms and 2 tropical depressions, leading to:

1531

broken - down houses

239.340

damaged and unroofed houses

>473.450

flooded houses.

Constructing “Resilient Houses”,
consistently combating floods

The poor are the most vulnerable when it comes to facing natural disasters, since they lack necessary resources to self-recover.

The RESILIENT HOUSES program came to life as an attempt to:

Design, supervise and construct resilient houses in collaboration with beneficiaries and local authorities;
Affiliate various sources to assist the locals;
Help financing a portion of the cost associated with constructing dwellings while residents reciprocate labor and the remainders (cash, construction supplies,...);
Research and employ housing models corresponding to different types of catastrophe.

“The locals desire to stick with their homeland. No one wants to leave. Thus, we will restore their collapsed houses and convert those into stormproof and flood - resistant shelters.”

- Ms. Phạm Thị Hương Giang (Jang Kều),
President of the Board of Founders of Sống Foundation.

From Passive community to Active community

Through the Co-Design technique (jointly design alongside the community), we concretize cooperative spirit in the Resilient Houses program, enabling beneficiaries and supporting parties to actively propose initiatives in terms of construction and problem solving.

Beneficiaries

“Experts” in their own experience are the centre of the design procedure.

Resilient Housing Program

“Inspirer” that guides and accommodates beneficiaries with support tools.

Accordingly, each safe house is meticulously designed by Sống’s architects based on the needs, interests and living habits of the residents.

By choosing to cooperate “with” instead of doing “for” them, we enable beneficiaries to take the initiative to build their own new lives.

The story
of Flood

Nhà An Toàn Miền Trung - Quảng Trị

Determine your future with a special house

The architects of the Resilient Housing Program (RHP) carefully observed the distance when my wife and I lifted our feet off the ground to design the stairs with a suitable height so that our walking will be more convenient.

Mr. P.V.V (Hải Định Village, Quảng Trị Province) has impaired mobility so he has difficulty walking around. The couple live in a low-lying area in a house roof that has not been cemented yet.

Understanding their needs, the architects of RHP meticulously observed the distance when Mr. V and his wife lifted their feet off the ground.

When the distance of the feet when lifting off the ground is less than 17cm, the stairs will be built with a height of 15cm and a width of 30cm to make it easier for them to move up and down. 2x4 steel tube bar with 4cm in width will be used for a stair handrail. It will run vertically for the purpose of fulcrum, keeping balance for the couple.

Additionally, the window exit is built 45cm from the floor and a bed is put next to the window so that the family can easily access the rescue team when there is a severe flood.

Nhà An Toàn Miền Tây - Đồng Tháp

“My house is beautiful, isn’t it?”

Looking at the dream house gradually being completed by the builders of RHP, I proudly show it to my neighborhood every time they go to the café. So it's time to move into a new house to celebrate Tết this year!

When demolishing the house to build a new one, Ms. L (Hồng Ngự District, Đồng Tháp Province) said, “The wood panels were completely eaten by termites and none of them were usable.”

When the house was nearing completion, she was proud to say that she could celebrate Tet in a new house. “I’m really looking forward to the house. Luckily, the workers finished quickly, so I can move into the new house in time on the 19th to celebrate Tet this year,“ she said.

Talking to those who visit the café, she smiles brightly and talks enthusiastically with a genuine Southwest Vietnamese accent. She asks them about her house that is about to be completed: “What do you think about my house? Isn't it beautiful?" - "Yes. It really is."

Nhà An Toàn Miền Trung - Huế

“Khi mô đoan vê lai ngay cât nha anh lôc mưng pua bơ khoc luôn”

Basically translated: When will the team come back? On the day the house was built, Mr. Lập (my husband) was so happy that he cried. My wife and I were very emotional when we received the house. We instantly texted the staff of the Resilient Housing Program to join the fun.

Ms. H. (Quảng Điền District, Thừa Thiên Huế Province) lives in a degraded house roof with cracked walls due to the storms. The couple along with their children and their mom have lived there for years.

When the staff came to supervise the construction process, Ms. H. emotionally shared, "I am very happy. No one believes we can build a pretty house like this."

The house was completed and inspected at the beginning of June in 2021. Later on, when the staff returned to survey her neighborhood, Ms. H welcomed everyone with a bright smile. The staff at RHP felt like meeting their friends and their relatives.
