Blackwell North Amer
In Nobody's Child, Noble tells the story of how her own suffering as a street child in Dublin became the bridge to the destitute street children of Saigon.
In three years she wrought a miracle. Through sheer willpower and force of personality she shifted from fairy godmother to humanitarian crusader, winning over callous bureaucrats in Hanoi: by 1993 she had opened a hospital, schools, and a social center for these children, determined not only to save them but to change the cruel disregard of an entire social system.
