This pithy book examines the issues of trauma and poverty in the lives of children through an international lens. Having worked for 30 years in 94 countries on 5 continents, Einar Helander brings a wealth of direct experience with children, family homes, schools, child-focused institutions, and Health and Social Welfare ministries from around the world. He asserts that 5 to 10 million children (primarily girls younger than 5 years) “die annually because of intentional neglect or outright murder” (p xviii).
