Abstract: During late September 2011, floods in the Mekong delta swept through the seven provinces of An Giang, Dong Thap, Long An, Can Tho, Vinh Long, Hau Giang and Kien Giang, causing significant loss and damage, especially in the first three provinces. Unlike the typical seasonal floods that Viet Nam faces every year, the Mekong delta experienced slow onset floods inundating large areas for more than three months. Many houses, which normally would have withstood flooding, were damaged or destroyed affecting the daily life of communities and disrupting livelihoods. In response to the disaster, the Viet Nam Red Cross Society, supported by the IFRC and Participating National Societies, responded to the needs of the most vulnerable by distributing non-food items and providing goods and services in emergency health, water and sanitation and hygiene promotion. As part of its relief activities, the Viet Nam Red Cross Society implemented two cash transfer programmes to support the households in the most affected provinces of An Giang, Dong Thap and Long An.
