Make a dish to make a difference and give children in crisis a seat at the table
In October we’re inviting you to raise funds to provide healing meals for children rescued from slavery and homelessness in Vietnam.
Blue Dragon helps street children, and those who have been trafficked into factories, sold to brothels or forced marriages. They help them back to health and provide them with everything they need to recover, to thrive and to build a better future.
The Covid-19 lock down has reduced Blue Dragon’s fundraising income, and also caused even more children to be trafficked or make their way to the city where they sleep rough.
Money you help us to raise goes a long way in Vietnam. Here are some examples:
Nutritious, tasty lunches for one street child for a whole month: NZ$42
One week of full care in Blue Dragon’s shelter in Hanoi, for a survivor of human trafficking, including food, medicine and one set of clothing: NZ$78
Monthly school fees, a uniform and books for one child, and resources for impoverished schools: NZ$85
Course fee, textbook, stationery and basic living allowance for a student at university for a month: NZ$130
Get together for some Kai with a difference in September. We’re inviting you to use your culinary skills to raise funds to provide healing meals for children rescued from slavery and homelessness in Vietnam.
At home – invite a group of friends / family – everyone brings a dish - we suggest a Vietnamese theme. And everyone donates what they would have spent eating out, to give Blue Dragon children nutritious meals to grow healthy and strong.
At work social – everyone contributes a dish or yummy baked treat and donates what they would have spent on lunch to Blue Dragon.
Try out one of the recipes prepared by Blue Dragon staff and kids or simply prepare your favourite dish.
