From marketing maven to angel of the garbage districtthe inspiring authorized biography of Maggie Gobran, the "Mother Teresa of Egypt."
Since 1997, Maggie Gobran and her organization Stephens Children have been changing lives in Cairos notorious zabala, or garbage slums. Her innovative, transformational work has garnered worldwide fame and multiple Nobel Prize nominations, but her full story has remained untolduntil now.
Bestselling authors Martin Makary and Ellen Vaughn chronicle Mama Maggies surprising pilgrimage from privileged child to stylish businesswoman to college professor pondering Gods 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 servesthe men, women, and children who prove every day what a little bit of help and a lot of love can do.
