Publisher's Summary

From marketing maven to angel of the garbage district - the inspiring authorized biography of Maggie Gobran, the "Mother Teresa of Egypt".
Since 1997 Maggie Gobran and her organization, 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. Best-selling 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, 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 children who prove every day what a little bit of help and a lot of love can do.

Paradigm Shift for Our Generation

If you are looking for inspiration to love the forgotten and cast aside poor as Jesus did, Mama Maggie is a modern day example of how we can do just that. Mama Maggie will make you look at life through a new lens and help you to realize that you truly cannot take the earthly riches of this world with you.
Highly recommended if you have that feeling that our culture needs to open our eyes to those in need, but haven't heard of someone that is actually doing it with their entire being.
