Full Product Description
From marketing maven to angel of the garbage district this is the inspiring, authorized biography of Maggie Gobran who became known as the "Mother Teresa of Egypt."
Since 1997, Maggie Gobran and her organisation, Stephen's Children, have been changing lives in Cairo's notorious "zabala", or garbage slums. Her innovative, transformational work has garnered worldwide fame and multiple Nobel Prize nominations, but her full story has remained untold until now.
Bestselling authors, Martin Makary and Ellen Vaughn, chronicle Mama Maggie's surprising pilgrimage from privileged child to stylish businesswoman to college professor pondering God's call to change. She answered that call by becoming the modest figure in white who daily navigates piles of stinking trash, bringing hope to the poorest of the poor.
Smart and savvy, and as tough as she is tender, Maggie Gobran is utterly surrendered to her mission to the "garbage people" who captured her heart. At her request, the book also spotlights the people she serves: the men, women and the children who prove, every day, what a little bit of help and a lot of love can do.
