Caring for abused children in Vietnam

Many have read the unforgettable story of Christina Noble. She lived in dire poverty as a young child until, after her mother died, she and her three siblings were sent to separate orphanages. In time she ended up homeless, living on the street. It was a miracle that she survived. As an adult, her own childhood suffering has fueled a deep passion for other children battling maltreatment, abuse and poverty. In 1989 she went to Vietnam to care for such children there and has dedicated her life to children’s rights.

When a company told us they had computers available for donation in Vietnam, we offered it on our Global Hand website. The Christina Noble Foundation received them (see main photo below) and used them for the children’s library in their Sunshine School: a great name for kids who would, otherwise, have a very dark childhood.
