The Christina Noble Children’s Foundation is an international partnership of people dedicated to serving children in need of emergency and long-term medical care, nutritional rehabilitation, educational opportunities, vocational training and job placement, as well as children at risk of sexual and economic exploitation.
The Foundation seeks to maximize the potential of each child.
This is accomplished within the context of the family and the community whenever possible
and always with love and respect for the dignity of each child as an individual.
Christina Noble arrived in Vietnam in 1989, and later in 1991 established
The Christina Noble Children’s Foundation in Ho Chi Minh City. Over 100 projects have been established
during the past 26 years providing vital health services, education opportunities, and community support programmes
to thousands of vulnerable children and their families annually.
In 1997, Christina extended the work of her Foundation into Mongolia after an investigative visit to Ulaanbaatar
where she was shocked to discover thousands of sick and destitute street children living in horrendous conditions beneath the city streets in manholes struggling to survive against the harsh winter temperatures which can reach as low as minus 40 degrees.
