Teen rescued from forced marriage

March 30, 2017

It was a friendship which robbed 2 sisters of their freedom. ‘Hieu’ has just been rescued by Blue Dragon from a forced marriage in China. She is 19 now, but was in Grade 12 and taking her final exams in school when she was trafficked. Her older sister had made a new ‘friend’ on Facebook and had been in touch with him for nearly a year. When he suggested a trip to China, Hieu went with her sister to keep her company. He sold them both as soon as they crossed the border. When Hieu managed to get hold of a mobile phone, she contacted her family and Blue Dragon was asked to help rescue her. She has been reunited with her relieved family. Hieu has no idea where her sister is, and Blue Dragon is now looking for her.
