New house for people in remote areas

(VBSP News) New and spacious houses were handed over to people in Tra Bung village, Tra Bong district (Quang Ngai) to welcome the Lunar New Year. In a remote place of the old Tay Tra district, which has now been merged into Tra Bong district, people still feel the sharing of many units and localities on the reunion day of the New Year.

The new house is built next to the old house, this year, Ho Van Dong and his wife welcome Tet holiday more warmly and joyfully

Today, husband and wife Ho Van Som and Ho Thi Tu with their young children in Tra Bung village, Tra Phong commune, Tra Bong district returned to their new home. Tu's mother-in-law came from the other side of the hill early to help the couple prepare tea and water to welcome guests. Solid four-level house built on an old cottage with full living room and kitchen.

With a support of VND 50 million from the district VBSP, the couple borrowed more to build a dream house. As the second poorest household in the village, living day by day with a small cinnamon garden and hired farming, they don’t know when they will have a house to avoid rain and wind in this harsh mountainous area. Returning to the new home, now the couple only takes care of their children and saves money to pay off their debts.

A few kilometers away, passing through the inter-village road, passing through the houses at the end of the hamlet, came to the house of Mr. and Mrs. Ho Van Dong. Tet holiday has come, but the rain is still pouring down the mountain, making the road to the mountainside residential cluster more muddy. The new house of Mr. Dong and his wife built next to the old dilapidated house. With a support of VND 50 million from the VBSP of Tra Bong district, Mr. Dong built a small house with enough places to live for his wife and children. Part of the old house is a kitchen to save living space. He and his wife have a cinnamon garden of more than a hundred roots, and they work as hired workers just enough to get through the day.

Nearly 50 years old, the couple still does not have a small, solid house to avoid the sun and wind. This year, celebrating Tet holiday at a new home, he and his wife doubled the joy. “There is no money to build a house, so I'm very happy to be supported VND 50 million. Today, I received a house to celebrate Tet holiday" said Mr. Ho Van Dong.

Donating houses to households in Tra Bung village, Tra Phong commune, Tra Bong district

Tra Bung village, Tra Phong commune, Tra Bong district has 142/175 poor households. More than 40km from the center of Tra Bong district, the road to Tra Bung village is far away, especially in the rainy and windy season. Far from the center of the district and commune, the people's conditions for accessing services and doing business are difficult. “With the State's attention and support, people have a better chance of getting out of poverty, but it's very difficult to be self-sufficient. When Tet holiday has a new house, not only the family is happy, but the people in the village are also happy," said Tra Bung village head Ho Van Ut.

Tra Phong commune was originally the center of the old Tay Tra district of Quang Ngai province, after merging into Tra Bong district, Tra Phong became the western central commune of Tra Bong district. There is no longer an administrative center, the life and welfare of people in the old district faces many difficulties. The villages and communes of the old district are further away from the new district center, so the conditions for accessing services and trade are more closed.

Supporting the remote areas, especially the merged districts, the local people's lives are still struggling and poor, the functional branches are trying to take care of the social security for the people. In 2022, the branch of VBSP in Quang Ngai province will coordinate with local authorities in mountainous districts to support the construction of 20 new houses of solidarity for poor mountainous people in the province. In which, 4 new houses are for people in Tra Bung village, Tra Phong commune, one of the attractive areas of Tra Bong district. New houses have just been completed in time for the poor families in the village to welcome the Lunar New Year.

We coordinate with the authorities of mountainous districts, especially interested in building houses for poor people in the mountainous areas.
