The historic flood from October 14-17 has caused serious damage to local people in the central Quang Binh Province. More than 92,000 houses were inundated, 56 house roofs blown off, 18 houses collapsed, 25 found dead and missing, many traffic routes separated, and lots of people’s assets were washed away by flood currents.

The Petrolimex Quang Binh itself witnessed many petrol stations being flooded over 1m deep, or even 1.5m deep for days such as petrol stations in Le Thuy and Tuyen Hoa districts. In water-ravaged areas, some petrol stations were completely isolated and only reachable by boats. Houses of the company’s 50 employees were inundated, some were even flooded to rooflines and some had economic losses up to a billion dong.

Though heavily-hit by the historic flood, Petrolimex Quang Binh took prompt actions to tackle the floods with a quick and determined mind. From the Steering Board, Leadership to the whole company staff, all proactively made preparations and plans to deal with the floods, ensuring complete safety for people, goods and property. Soon after the floods receded, Petrolimex Quang Binh quickly recovered its operation to satisfy demands of local people.

Learning about the heavy damage caused by the floods to people in Quang Binh Province and to Petrolimex Quang Binh staff, the leadership of Vietnam National Petroleum Group (Petrolimex/Group) and Vietnam National Petroleum Trade Union quickly gave their regards to flood-hit families. They also spent VND400 million (US$17,000) from the Group’s Social Fund to provide financial support for the company’s affected families (VND100 million) and the province’s affected families (VND300 million).

In order to assist relief efforts of Petrolimex Quang Binh, leaders of many Petrolimex member companies phoned Petrolimex Quang Binh leaders to convey their regards and urged their companies’ staff to contribute some financial support.

Such activities are a strong spiritual encouragement to Petrolimex Quang Binh leaders and staff to help them quickly overcome difficulties and soon stabilise production and business as well as the spiritual and material life of labourers.

Petrolimex Quang Binh also spent VND100 million from the company’s Welfare Fund to offer financial support for heavily-affected families of the company’s staff, and another VND100 million to support schools and students in flood-hit areas.
