HANOI, Nov. 16 (Xinhua) -- An aid package from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) for victims of Typhoon Damrey arrived in Vietnam's central Khanh Hoa province on Thursday.
The package includes 600 sets of household utensils, 3,000 sets of personal hygiene aids, 1,000 sets of house repair tools, an aluminium-clad ship and a 40-HP engine, Vietnam News Agency reported.
The goods, worth more than 174,000 U.S. dollars, were sent by the Jakarta-based ASEAN Co-ordinating Center for Humanitarian Assistance on Disaster Management. The action is based on the ASEAN spirit of "One ASEAN, one response," which calls for fast and collective response to disasters in and outside the region.
In early November, Typhoon Damrey claimed 106 lives, left 25 people missing and injured 197 others in Vietnam's central and central highlands regions, said the country's Central Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control.
