Storm Noul Disaster Relief Fund

On Friday 18th September, Hue was hit by Storm Noul. Noul is the largest storm to have hit Hue in recent years, and wreaked havoc across the province. At least 6 people died, many more were injured and approximately 2,000 homes were destroyed or badly damaged.

The rural poor were the most effected. Their houses are least able to resist the storm; many have lost their roofs and walls. Unfortunately, local authorities will be least able to assist the rural poor in the recovery process.
