VVAW Supports Housing in Vietnam (photos)


[Printer-Friendly Version]

These two homes (photos below) are the first to be built with funds donated to by VVAW to VAVA last year. The first house is under construction for Mr. Hoan Van Huni, Van Trach Commune, Bo Trach District, Quang Binh Province. The second house is for Ms. Nguyen Thi Hoan, Duy Ninh Commune, Quang Ninh District, Quang Binh Province. Quang Binh Province is about 20 km from the 17th parallel that was considered the demarcation between north and south Vietnam during the American War. It lies immediately north of Quang Tri Province. Both provinces were severely devastated by the bombing from the US B 52's during the conflict. The US used more tonage of bombs in these provinces than was used on Germany and Japan during World War II. Unexploded ordnance continues to be a major hazard to the people living in these areas. Quang Binh Province was home to General Vo Nguyen Giap.
