DUBLIN (CNS) — Christina Noble has helped hundreds of thousands of marginalized children in Vietnam and Mongolia, and although it has affected her health, the 70-year-old grandmother would not have it any other way.
In a May interview with Catholic News Service, she said she can no longer go down the sewers of the Mongolian capital, Ulaanbaatar, in search of abandoned children.
Noble said the children take refuge in the sewers from a society that does not want them and to escape the freezing temperatures, which can plummet as low as -22 degrees Fahrenheit. In the sewers, disease is rampant.
