The activity is part of the project “Damrey housing recovery and rehabilitation”, financed by the Korean government, aiming to support building 300 resilient houses in three central provinces of Khanh Hoa, Phu Yen and Quang Nam.

The major beneficiaries of the project are the poor and near-poor families whose houses were heavily damaged by the recent Typhoon Damrey, who will be equipped with necessary knowledge and resources to repair and rebuild their houses to ensure its endurance in future typhoons and floods.
