A true story of children who suffer in silence as they struggle to exist without the necessities of water, food, shelter, and love. Living in impossible conditions, many do not know what they lack - the love of a family and the comfort of a home - for survival is their only concern as they grow up in a world of adults who are busy with their own survival.
Conversations with dozens of boys and girls in Myanmar (formally known as Burma) serve as the groundwork for these stories. They put a face to the suffering that many children endure every day as they live in the midst of an ethnic war and under military rule. They face poverty, Christian persecution, and physical and sexual abuse. Each child's testimony speaks of survival of such hardships and rescue to a Christian children's home. From their voices we hear the desperate plea for help for themselves and for those whose voices have not been heard.
