Join us on Friday evening October 30 at University Club of Chicago, for the latest in our IN-Conversation series.
IN-Chicago is delighted to host
Christina Noble OBE, Dubliner and Advocate for Children's Rights, who will discuss her incredible journey of personal survival and perseverance, her ultimate success in providing critical services to children in need in Vietnam and Mongolia, and her future plans for the Christina Noble Children's Foundation.
Orphaned in the slums of Dublin in 1944 and having endured a harrowing existence for many years, Christina Noble arrived in Vietnam in 1989 and two years later started her Foundation in Ho Chi Minh City, assisting children in desperate circumstances. In 1997, she expanded the Foundation's operations into Mongolia. Today in both countries, the Foundation provides healthcare, education and community development services to children and families in need. She remains the principal driving force and inspiration, and retains close personal contact with the children served by the Foundation. Christina has been featured in two recent films - "Noble" starring Deirdre Kane (Moone Boy), and the critically acclaimed documentary "In a House That Ceased To Be".
