Book Summary
Some experts predict that as many as one hundred million children spend their days on the streets of the world's cities fending for themselves. Most of these have somewhere to return to at night, but ten million are totally on their own, uncared for and with no-one to turn to except other members of their small group or gang. The result of extensive research, this book gives a heart-rending overview of the situation of the world's street children. Hard statistics are combined with stories about individuals to challenge our indifference and awaken our conscience. Throughout, the present day issue is seen in conjunction with the plight of homeless children revealed over a century ago by Charles Dickens in his novel, "Oliver Twist", revealing how little progress has been made. Money raised by the sale of this book helps the Oasis Trust, a charitable organization who work among the street children of India and South America. Andy Butcher is the author of "Streetwise" and co-author of "Living On the Devil's Doorstep".
