Friends of Hue Foundation was officially founded in May 2000 in San Jose for the purpose of assisting victims of the November 1999 flood that ravaged Central Vietnam, specifically those who resided in the Thua Thien Hue Province. The floods had taken 595 lives, while subjecting 55,000 to homelessness, also causing $290 million in damage to the region, and furthermore, $490 million in economic losses. It is estimated that 1.7 million people of the central Provinces of Vietnam were affected by the floods.
