Love And Garbage: Ivan Klima
Dos jóvenes cartoneros se conocen en la calle mientras recogen basura y todo tipo de residuos. Emprenden un viaje de búsqueda y conocimiento mutuo que los lleva a reflexionar sobre la clase de vida que se puede vivir en medio de la basura y la clase de sociedad que permite que algunos de sus integrantes deba y pueda ganarse el sustento en esas condiciones. Una obra que reflexiona sobre una ciudad ´´tomada” por cartoneros, trapitos, piqueteros, manteros, comerciantes enojados, sindicalistas y todo tipo de protestatarios que utiliza a la ciudad y a sus habitantes como rehenes incapaces de reaccionar ante tanto abuso. Todo ello bajo la mirada indiferente o cómplice de nuestra clase política.Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish. 1. Spanish.

From marketing maven to angel of the garbage district - the inspiring authorized biography of Maggie Gobran, the ´´Mother Teresa of Egypt´´. Since 1997 Maggie Gobran and her organization, Stephen´s Children, have been changing lives in Cairo´s notorious zabala, or garbage slums. Her innovative, transformational work has garnered worldwide fame and multiple Nobel Prize nominations, but her full story has remained untold - until now. Best-selling authors Martin Makary and Ellen Vaughn chronicle Mama Maggie´s surprising pilgrimage from privileged child to stylish businesswoman to college professor pondering God´s call to change. She answered that call by becoming the modest figure in white who daily navigates piles of stinking trash, bringing hope to the poorest of the poor. Smart and savvy, as tough as she is tender, Maggie Gobran is utterly surrendered to her mission to the ´´garbage people´´ who captured her heart. At her request the book also spotlights the people she serves - the men, women, and children who prove every day what a little bit of help and a lot of love can do. 1. Language: English.
