How Blue Dragon Helps Children in Vietnam
Floods across the central provinces of the country have made headlines around the world. This is a part of Vietnam that experiences floods every year, and expects bad weather, but rarely to this extent or severity. Storm after storm has hit, and areas that very rarely see floods have been under water for days.

What People Say
I have gone through lots of upheavals in my life. You are the one who helped me overcome all of these. You are like my second mother. Thank you for caring for me and helping me over the past few years.
Ngoc, 19, a trafficking survivor
Thank you and other people at Blue for helping me, especially you. I feel grateful to you for caring and fully supporting me for the past time. I am really grateful to you. I’m very sad since I can’t have a day off from work to visit you for the last time as a student, but I hope one day I will meet you again. I love you so much!
Huong, a student supported by Blue Dragon
(My son) left home with his friend and didn’t come back… We had been so desperate when people at Blue Dragon came and brought him back to the family. I would like to express my sincerest gratitude and send big thanks to all the staff working in Blue Dragon, especially to the founder and all the donors. If it hadn’t been for you, our children would have been struggling in this dangerous and alluring world.

All children have the right to be children, to be safe, to attend school, to play, to be treated with respect, to be heard, to be understood and to be loved.
