15 year old Cuong* was living on the streets of Hanoi before he met Blue Dragon. Cuong now lives at one of our shelters, where he has thrived with the right support and nurturing. As it turns out, he has a talent for spotting children in crisis and introducing them to the safety of Blue Dragon.
He recognizes kids who are new to the streets by observing clues, like whether or not they are wearing shoes. Cuong knows what a street kid looks like, and what they feel like: alone and scared, with nobody to turn to.
One day, Cuong introduced our team to a boy who had run away from home – or more precisely, biked away – after an argument with his parents. The boy was so angry, he took a bag, some money and bicycled all the way to Hanoi from a neighbouring province. Cuong met him on the street, and told him he could eat a good meal and have a rest at Blue Dragon. The boy came to our centre, and after meeting with a social worker decided to go home and work out the problem with his family. We can’t imagine what might have happened to him if he had been left to fend for himself. Instead, our team brought him home and the boy has now returned to school.
By introducing street kids to a safe and healthy environment, Cuong changes lives. We are proud he has become an Ambassador for Blue Dragon.Read more
