Popular singer Tran Thi Thuy Tien received over 150 billion dong (US$6.5 million) within 10 days after calling on Oct. 13 for donations to aid people affected by severe floods caused by heavy rain and tropical storms in central Vietnam last month.

Based in Ho Chi Minh City, Thuy Tien and her group of volunteers handed emergency aid to victims of the floods. Now they are working with local authorities to get lists of tens of thousands of households who are seriously affected and give them 2-10 million dong each depending on their conditions so that they can repair their houses and buy tools, seedlings and poultry.
