"Now this stream is very dangerous, my relatives usually take the children by raft but now cannot use it. I hope that the state will invest in suspension bridges soon for people to travel more conveniently," Mr Vo a Giong, the head of Huoi Ha village said.

Ms. Nguyen Thi Thuy, Principal of Na Sang secondary school boarding school made an arrangement to the parents since, “The flood rains have divided Huoi Ha village,” she said. “From our school, there are more than 50 students in Huoi Ha village and so far, the teachers and parents have mobilized the children to attend classes the best they can.”


However, after surviving from crossing the dangerous river, the children and their parents still need to walk for five hours on a slippery terrain before they reach the school.
