I don’t often cry when I read a book. When I do, it must be a pretty emotional topic, like the ones in No Longer a Slumdog by K.P. Yohannan. He tells stories of several children of India and Asia who have been abandoned, sold, or just left to fend for themselves in a cruel world.
Read about an abandoned girl who found hope at the end of the railroad tracks, a young boy who escaped after years of forced servitude, and many others whose lives have been redeemed. You’ll be captivated by this powerful move of God as K.P. Yohannan leads you on a journey through the slums and villages of South Asia into the hearts and lives of these precious children.
I found myself genuinely upset while reading these heartbreaking stories. Of our most vulnerable people, our children, being given away, sold into slavery or the sex trade, or simply left alone because their parents cannot care for them anymore.
Luckily, there are a few places like the Bridge of Hope centers that help care for these children: physically, mentally and spiritually. The author desperately communicates the needs of these children in the hopes that we, the readers, will be moved to help sponsor a child or make a donation.
This book, No Longer a Slumdog, tells of hard truths in these villages where this tragedy takes place every day. But, he also offers glimmers of hope and how these tales don’t have to end in the worst way possible. That the people of the world can and should offer their support to those who need it the most.
