  • Description

    In South Vietnam hundreds of refugees from Phuoc Long Province, now entirely under Communist control, have fled to the comparative safety of Binh duong Province in the south.

    Early this month Communist forces succeeded in capturing the provincial capital, Phuoc Long, and thousands of refugees made the long, dangerous march to government-held areas.

    In the Phu Van district in Binh duong Province, about 30 kms (18 miles) north-west of Saigon, hundreds of refugees are now living on meagre rations under minimal shelter.

    The refugees are being supplied with government-subsidised donated gifts of both food and clothing. They are living in shelters with roofs but no walls. In some cases the refugees are sprawling plastic sheeting between forest trees to form shelters.

    Most of the refugees in the Phu Van district have come from outlying areas in Phuoc Long Province. The majority of those who escaped from the provincial capital moved north to government outposts in Quang Duc Province.
