Bridge Across My Sorrows by Christina Noble

Bridge Across My Sorrows by Christina Noble


Quick Overview

Christina Noble is a child of the Dublin slums. Her story is one of bravery and resilience in the face of deprivation and abuse. She finds in a dream the will to fight back and her hope lies in a determination to work among the bui doi, the street children of Vietnam.


On the streets of Ho Chi Minh City, the destitute children swarm and the rich turn a blind eye. To these needy children "Mama Tina" has become an irrepressible, unorthodox and staunch champion. Within two years of arriving she has opened a Medical and Social Centre and achieved worldwide fame. Bu she berates all those who call her a "Mother Teresa". In her own words she is "one street child using her wiles to help other street children". Christina's story is punctuated by flashes of humour and exurberance that are both her trademark and her means of survival.
