Give to change the course of a life affected by modern slavery.
‘Hieu’ went to China together with many other people in her village to work in a plastic factory. All was well for 3 months. That is, until a group of gangsters forcibly grabbed her from her dormitory. They sold her immediately to a brothel. Hieu was beaten when she did not have more than 20 customers a day. She was desperate to escape and managed to borrow the phone of a customer to contact her brother. That was when our team was alerted to her case. It took the rescue team 2 months to find her, and to figure out a way to help her escape. She is young and pretty, and was guarded by 2 men at all times. It was an escape engineered in split seconds. She was overwhelmed and sobbed for a long time in the getaway car. She could only utter three words: ‘I am safe’. There is not a day that goes by that we don’t feel grateful for our deep partnership with Blue Dragon in Vietnam.
