Project OverviewThe SMEC Foundation donated AU$2,500 to the MiVAC Kon Katu Road Repair Project in Vietnam. Kon Katu village is 20km north-west of Kon Tum, on the banks of the Dak Bla River, in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. The project aims to provide an all-weather access crossing over the mountain stream that flows into the Dak Bla River. During monsoon season, flooding of the Kon Katu road limits access to villagers. The construction of the new crossing will enable the villagers to access their crops all year round. The project is run by MiVAC, an initiative of the Australian Vietnam Veterans, which aims to bring relief to communities in mine-affected areas in Vietnam.
