Mr. Duong Huan – Head of Cam Dong village said: “For decades, local people have spent hundreds of millions of dong just to build a few bamboo bridges each year. However, its lifespan is unpredictable and completely at the mercy of heaven and earth. Whenever there is a big flood, the bridge will drift. Then do it again. Just let it go. If we don’t have a bridge, we can go by boat, but the boat is too cold, so we fully understand that we are going to take the tin boat. There are years due to continuous natural disasters that cause local people to build temporary bamboo bridges several times!”. In the past, Cam Dong village was very poor, the whole village had no roads, electricity, stations, and schools. Because it is located close to the river, the houses have to be built very high. The traces of each flood are still imprinted on every house. Mr. Duong Huan has been the village chief for decades, so this place is very clear. Over the past ten years, this poor village has changed skin and flesh, the ODA grid pulls electricity to households, there is one pole in every 10 houses. With electricity, everything changes.
