Established in 1989 by Ireland’s Christina Noble to assist the street children and orphans of Vietnam. Christina Noble suffered a tragic childhood in her homeland Ireland. Finding life unbearable in the cruel children’s institutions of the day, Christina herself, became a streetchild and knew from personal experience the realities of such a life. Thanks to Christina many children in Vietnam will not suffer in this way and their childhood will remain a treasured, precious time in their lives. Christina Noble’s dedication and hard work has changed the destiny of Vietnam’s disadvantaged children. The Foundation’s work now extends throughout Vietnam and into Mongolia.
