Vietnam Seeing Effects of El Niño in Drought Conditions

ADRA is providing food emergency food to homes affected by the El Niño-driven drought in Vietnam.

The central area of Vietnam has been hit by the most severe drought the region has seen in 100 years. This drought crisis is a direct consequence of the powerful El Niño system that has caused similar emergency conditions in several parts of the world.

ADRA’s initial response has provided food kits to 600 drought-affected households in Ninh Thuan province. The food in these kits will supplement rice being provided by the government.
