I am moved by Habido's courage and perseverance as anyone should be as Habido's story is beyond a "rags to riches" story.
It was not an easy story to read as it is so difficult to be reminded of the hardships others face in this world while we have a far better life. I know I felt guilt and anger that more is not being done to help the hungry and the homeless throughout the world. I hang my head as I also could be doing more!
I recommend this book to those readers who like to view life through the eyes of someone who has lived through hardship and achieved their dreams. Habido's story is especially pertinent for readers interested in knowing more about life in Africa especially Samolia. People considering missionary or other volunteer work will especially appreciate Habido insights.
Most importantly, I recommend this book to others that are coming to the United States from other third-world countries as Habido's story is one of hope and encouragement to anyone facing a similar challenge.
