All over the world, they peer from the shadows of deconstructed realities…
From the rice fields of Vietnam, laboring under a relentless sun.
From the slums of Kenya, neglected and starving .
From the mountains of Nepal, sold into slavery.
From the countryside of Zimbabwe, oppressed by the whims of a corrupt dictator.
And from countless other hidden corners of the world: 153 million orphans.
Vulnerable to disease, abuse, neglect, death.
The littlest voices among us… forgotten and powerless.
Unless you and I listen.
