Saving little souls

Saving little souls:
Sexual temptation results in hundreds of unwanted babies being abandoned by young female factory workers every year, but things are finally moving in the right direction in Vietnam.

altPatrolling the backstreets on the outskirts of Ho Chi Minh City, Huynh Tieu Huong made another heart-breaking discovery. Partially concealed in a pile of rubbish and wrapped in newspapers was a tiny baby.

“I heard her crying. She was very small, only about a day old,” Tieu Huong said. “We took her home and nursed her for a while. Then when she was strong enough we took her to hospital.”

It was just another night’s work for Tieu Huong, who runs an orphanage for abandoned children in Binh Duong province.
