Quang Nam, November 10, 2020 – Within a month, Quang Nam province has been hit with devastating storms and a series of fatal landslides triggered by Typhoon No. 9 (Typhoon Molave). People in Central Vietnam, especially in Quang Nam province, have been going through one of the most difficult times in history as they are reeling from the tragic aftermaths of the country’s most intense weather in years.
Proud to call the Central region its homeland for over 110 years, Larue Biere – a brand of HEINEKEN Vietnam - has committed to providing immediate relief to 800 affected households in Quang Nam province. Today was Larue Biere team’s first trip to visit and present in-kind and cash donations to 307 households in four communes in Dai Loc district – including Dai Tan, Dai Cuong, Dai Nghia and Dai Lanh; and Tam Hai commune in Nui Thanh district. These households have suffered enormous loss of property, and in some cases even loss of family members.
This November, Larue Biere team will continue working with the local authorities in Phuoc Son and Nam Tra My district, the two areas tragically impacted by several deadly landslides, to identify impacted households and present donations to them in person.
“The people of Central Vietnam are known for their great perseverance and optimism under any circumstances. During challenging times like this, we believe that they need not only positivity but also practical support. Larue Biere hopes that our humble donations today will help address the urgent sustenance needs among the affected households in Quang Nam province as they look to rebuild their lives,” said Mr. Le Qui Don, Human Resources Director of HEINEKEN Vietnam, representing Larue brand.
Larue Biere is a product of HEINEKEN Vietnam. In July, to support COVID-19 relief efforts in Quang Nam province, Larue Biere donated VND 1 billion through the local Vietnam’s Fatherland Front to purchase medical equipment and support health care and emergency service workers.
