After Tet, the next 50 houses will be built in Ha Tinh and Quang Binh provinces and will be piloted in southwestern provinces. The project’s goal of 2014 is about to be completed because the project has built 54 houses up to now. The target for 2015 is 150 resilient houses. We – the members & volunteers of the Resilient Housing Program hope and believe that the Project will be able to fulfill the 2015 plan thanks to the support, contribution and cooperation of all friends.
