Each house was built at a cost of nearly 50 million VND (2,200 USD). Beneficiaries included impoverished households and those whose houses were destroyed by the storm.

In addition, funds worth 5,000 USD each were set up in the provinces of Phu Yen and Khanh Hoa to help local residents improve their housing situations.

Damrey hit Vietnam on November 4, 2017, affecting more than 4.3 million people and causing losses of more than 1 billion USD. Khanh Hoa, Phu Yen, Binh Dinh and Quang Nam provinces were hardest hit.
