Conditions

I've written a lot about the child trafficking that Blue Dragon has confronted; here are some images to show what I've been talking about.

Here's a very short clip of the inside of a factory. Apologies for the low quality - footage is not easy to obtain.





This is where the kids and other workers sleep - right on the floor beside the sewing machines. The boy in the dark blue shirt looking towards the camera is 13 years old; he's one of the kids we took home.



And here are the 11 children we took back home by train. The man in the blue shirt at the end is the Deputy President of the local government area that all these children came from.

Well done, Michael! I've been following the clues of your heroic actions on this blog for a while. Being a Vietnamese, I truly appreciate what you've done for the kids. Looking forward to joining you one day.

Thanks for all the wonderful works you guys have done for the street kids in Viet Nam. Please keep up your good works.

It is time for all of us to give a helping hand in confronting the underage workers and raising the abuse issues to the proper authorities to come up with the best and timely manner solution to deal with the matter. ThanhNamMinh@gmail.com
