Christina Noble : the Founder

Christina Noble grew up in the Liberties, a deprived area of Dublin, in the 1950s. From firsthand experience Christina understands a childhood of pain and betryal as well as loneliness and suffering caused by living on the streets.

Christina endured a life of deprivation and abuse most of us would find unimaginable. After the early death of her Mother, she and her five siblings were separated, Christina lived in an orphanage until the age of 16 when she was forced to live on the streets of Dublin. In years to come when Christina was driven to breaking point from overwork and a violent husband, she found in a dream the will to fight. Her vision was to work amoungst  the "bui doi", the street children of Vietnam, where she arrived in 1989, with no money and no contacts.

" Its not just about mending bodies; its also about restoring peoples independence, giving them a life, not just an experience"

Christina Noble is the author of two best selling books, "Bridge Across My Sorrows" and "Mama Tina"
