Summary "At least 5,000 children live on the streets of Uganda's capital city of Kampala. Some forget the names of their villages. The youngest may not know the names of their parents. But Gladys Kalibbala--part journalist, part detective, part Good Samaritan--does not hesitate to dive into difficult or even dangerous situations to aid a child. Author of a newspaper column called 'Lost and Abandoned,' she is a resource that police and others turn to when they stumble across a stranded kid with a hidden history"--Amazon.com.
