A message from an acquaintance pulled us over. After several appointments, we found Chau Ngoc Linh at a sporting goods store. Two weeks have passed since the day she took her clothes to Da Nang and began her independent journey, Linh wearing two faded clothes.
enter university empty-handed
Linh said casually, “The clothes of a student at Da Nang University of Pedagogy let me stay in the same room and wear them temporarily, wait for the salary, and then borrow them to buy new clothes.”
message from an orphan girl
The sportswear store is where the girl begins her independent journey into the loneliness of her life. Linh has no information about relatives.
The only biological person she remembers is the mother who visits every year and then quickly leaves with her disabled sister, who is living in a social protection center in Quang Nam province.
Little girl working. The young female shopkeeper said she had accepted the job and asked Linh about his family in his spare time. But each time, Linh expressed bewilderment. She said that when she first entered, he saw her pale, penitent, gently asking her about her condition, she realized the predicament of a little girl with empty hands in the middle of the city, unable to find love. No one was there.
Mr. Phan Xuan Phuc – who knows information about Linh and is connected to us – said that a friend in Nam Quang had sent a message to an orphan girl whose father and mother could not take care of her and this year had passed out from university, so he asked for her number to pick her up. Linh on her way to Da Nang for enrollment. In the first call he announced that he would pick up and help Linh settle in Da Nang for the first time, he only said a few sentences and then hung up.
But then Phuc received a series of messages from Linh. He panicked upon hearing the message “Why did you call me so far? I’ve been waiting for a call for so long, such a hand” as if there was something wrong with it.
Fuchs said, “But I understand that this is the suppressed and helpless mood of a man who is playing with a lack of support and does not know where to go to face his outstretched hand.”
just go and it will become a road
About 10 square meters, Linh Inn is located in a deep alley on Dong Ke Street, next to Da Nang University of Education. Only a bed, two warped utensils, a gas stove, a few bowls and a study table lying near the window looking outside.
Some worn-out clothes hung neatly on hooks, Linh said that she only had one set, the rest belonged to the student sister. And this sister is also an orphan, who “graduated” from the social protection center of Quang Nam province and then went to the city to study at the university, independent and empty-handed like Linh’s story.
Chau Ngoc Linh told the story haltingly, as if she was trying to suppress her choking emotions when she talked about her family.
Linh’s memory only remembers that she was an orphan, she also once had a mother. Mother and daughter lived in Kham Duc (Phuoc Son District, Quang Nam), but when Linh was 5 years old, her mother took the two sisters to Cu Son and left them on the side of the road. A man nearby, whom Linh called Uncle, was so saddened that he kept the two sisters with him for about half a year before sending them to the provincial social security center.
Linh said that she was nurtured and fed, but there was still a void in family love that could not be filled. Linh mentioned some people from the Department of Education and Training, the accountant of the center knew that you should not have parents to talk and give gifts.
The day he got the information that he had passed the university, it was also the time to leave the centre. Linh stood in front of the gate, only crying, no one was near her. “The accountant ran to hug me, she cried too, then put a few lakhs in her pocket to tell her child to toll. After that, I was picked up by a friend who lived in this center to pick up my Up, take me to Da Nang, come to Da Nang. In this room,” Linh shared.
After 13 years at the Social Security Center, Linh’s first days of life began with “number 4”: no money, no papers, no parents, no clothes. There are only a few friends from the same orphanage where Linh can stay at the moment.
Before going to Da Nang, the girl wrote these words on the notebook: “There is no way on the ground, people go and become naturally”. The lonely road to Linh is starting on a path that was never available, but you tell yourself: “Just keep going and it will become a road”.
