Visit

This morning Blue Dragon had a very special visitor - the spouse of Thailand's Foreign Minister, who is in Vietnam for an ASEAN meeting.

Mrs. Chintana Piromya, along with some colleagues from Thailand and the Royal Thai Embassy, spent this morning meeting our kids, touring our centre, and learning about street kids in Vietnam.

Towards the end of the visit, there was a lovely moment when the Blue Dragon kids brought the craft items they had been making as gifts to our visitors. This wasn't something we had planned, but the children wanted to say thanks for the donations that the Thai visitors had brought to us.

We don't often have foreign dignitaries turn up at our centre, so this morning was really special for all of us!
