9 kgs happier

Back in November I wrote about a boy named Ngoc, who was trafficked from his home in the countryside to Ho Chi Minh City. Blue Dragon helped him to escape the trafficker and he's now progressing through school.

Today Ngoc hopped on a pair of bathroom scales... and we learned that he has put on 9 kilograms since November!

It's a Weight Watcher's nightmare, but for Ngoc this is excellent news. While he was working for the trafficker, he never had enough to eat and was always worried about the future... and so was always underweight.

Now that life is back on track and his worries are over, Ngoc is getting close to his ideal weight. He's still such a little guy, though! Hard to see where he's packing the 9 bricks...
