by Christina NobleChristina Noble knows the pain and loneliness of being left outside the door — Of having no door or one's own to walk through, for she was one a streetchild herself, alone on the streets of Dublin.In 1989, driven by a dream and by the memory of her own past, she traveled 6,000 miles to Vietnam, a country of great beauty where war has left a terrible legacy. Against extraordinary odds she opened the Christina Noble Children's Foundation, a haven of food, beds, medical aid and schooling where the street children of Saigon can find safety and new beginnings under the protection of "Mama Tina".
In this vivid and moving book, Christina's compelling story continues with the amazing tale of what she and her Foundation have achieved. She takes us from the streets of Saigon to the Children's Prisons of Mongolia. A staunch campaigner for children's rights, for her there are no frontiers, only a world filled with children reaching out.
