On this occasion, staff members of Vietnamese representative agencies in Indonesia also donated money to support the unfinished wish of the Vietnam News Agency’s reporter Dinh Huu Du, who laid down his life reporting the flood in Yen Bai province. 

The proceeds will contribute to the building of a library in remote Che Tao commune in Mu Cang Chai district and a bridge in Khe Ngoa village in Van Yen district (both in Yen Bai province), where local people have to use ropes to cross a stream every day.

Northern mountainous provinces and part of the central region have been submerged by widespread floods resulting from torrential rains on October 10 and 11.

The death toll climbed to 72 by 21:00 on October 15, according to the Central Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control.

Thirty others are still unaccounted for while 33 are injured.
