More About This Title Treasures in Sackcloth


This is a book of hope and encouragement beyond the grim news and photos that we see and hear in the media during times of crisis. It is true that conflicts aggravate population displacements, disrupt economic activity, food production, and destroy many homes and public infrastructure. Widespread food insecurity and chronic malnutrition become the norm in areas of insecurity, increasing the number of people living below the poverty line. However this is a story, analysis and interpretation of some crucial issues around humanitarianism from the view point of an African, Christian, aid worker’s perspective, who summarizes her experiences as being life changing, sometimes very challenging but a very enriching exposure, and one worthy of a lifetime. In this book you will find the treasures that Estar has learnt from her experiences in life, mostly through service to the lowly people, dressed in physical and spiritual sack clothes.
