On Friday night, Blue Dragon’s crisis team met 9 year old ‘May’ and her 10 year old brother ‘Tin’ on Hanoi’s streets. They were exhausted, hungry and terrified, having ridden their bicycles 160km (99 miles) to the city after getting in trouble at home and deciding to run away.
Fortunately May and Tin had not encountered anything too terrible by the time we met them and offered them shelter for the night. This afternoon, their dad came to pick them up; he was so relieved after a sleepless night not knowing where his children might be.
This lovely family is safely back together – and the crisis team will be out on the streets again tonight to see who else needs some help!
