Our Story




Christina knows first-hand what it is like to be denied her basic human rights, to be isolated and marginalised and to survive on the streets. This adversity in her young life instilled in her a passion for children’s rights worldwide.

Since arriving in Vietnam (1989) and Mongolia (1997), Christina and her foundation have established over 170 projects providing education, healthcare and community development humanitarian services to vulnerable and destitute children and their families and poor rural communities. To date these projects have assisted over 900,000 children and collectively have impacted the lives of over 1,000,000 children and adults.

Christina is the author of two international best-selling autobiographies, ‘Bridge Across My Sorrows’ (1994) and Mama Tina (1997) and the subject of a biopic feature film ‘NOBLE’ (2014) which won seven international film awards, Christina has also been the subject of two feature length award-winning documentaries – Mama Tina (1997) and ‘In A House That Cease to Be’ (2014).
