Blue Dragon - Vy free after phone call home

Vy free and on her way home

The Blue Dragon Rescue Team has just brought a trafficked Vietnamese woman back from China. Aged 18, “Vy” was trafficked 6 months ago to be sold as a bride; but when she tried to escape, her captors sold her instead to a brothel. Desperate to get home, Vy begged a man to borrow his mobile phone, and her call for help reached Blue Dragon.

We tracked Vy to a brothel outside Shanghai and our team helped her escape and flee back to the border. For security reasons, Vy couldn’t come straight back to Vietnam; she has been in hiding some days, but this morning she was able to safely return and is now making a statement to Vietnamese police.

Our next step is to ensure her traffickers are caught and prosecuted.
