Nick Ut’s photograph, taken on June 8, 1972 in the village of Trảng Bàng, in the south of Vietman, remains engraved in the memory. The image of this naked little girl on a road, crying in pain after being burned with napalm, has crossed generations. The little girl is now 59 years old and has just received her last skin treatment, reports CBS in an article relayed by Slate.

“Fifty years later, I am no longer the girl burned by Napalm. I am now a friend, a helper, a grandmother and a survivor who calls for peace,” Phan Thị Kim Phuc, better known as Kim Phuc, explained to the American media.

“She always smiles”

That day, Kim Phuc was playing outside with other children when soldiers shouted at them to run. Too late: the little girl is seriously burned by napalm. After photographing her, Nick Ut decides to help her and takes her to the hospital.

Throughout his life, Kim Phuc had to live with sometimes acute pain. But thanks to laser treatment, which she was able to follow for free at the Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute and which lasted for several years, her condition improved. “She looks better, she’s so happy, she’s always smiling,” said Nick Ut, who stayed in touch with her.
