16 year old San is safely home today.
Back in February, he left his family in the northern mountains of Vietnam to escape grinding poverty and look for work in Hanoi.
When Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation met San two weeks ago, he was hungry, living under a bridge, and working in a dangerous building site for just a few dollars a month.
With some time to rest and recuperate, San was ready to return home and on Monday he set out on the long journey with a Blue Dragon social worker. Even though he’s safe and well for now, we will stay in touch, and in the new year help San join a vocational training course.
He’s had a rough year, but things are finally looking up for San.
