Searching for Safety:The story of two boys sleeping rough during the global pandemic
As featured on ABC’s “Pandemic Warriors.”
When Blue Dragon met Tuan and Phi with the ABC film crew, they had been living at an empty construction site in concrete blocks under the scorching summer heat for a week. We provided them with food and clothes but it took a few days to win their trust before they accepted our offer to stay in an emergency shelter.
The boys found more than a place to sleep. They were safe. They helped cook meals and clean up, played badminton with other kids, and joined a career counselling workshop organised by Blue Dragon.
“When I was on the streets, there were days I didn’t have anything to eat. And sometimes there were perverts who approached me.
But I am safe now and so happy to have a place to stay.”
