For twenty-five years, Father Joe Maier, a Catholic priest, has lived and worked in Bangkok's bleakest slums, establishing more than thirty schools, five shelters for street kids, and the city's first AIDS hospice and home for AIDS mothers with AIDS kids - working with and in opposition to authority, while being threatened and shot at and, ultimately, praised by even his enemies. Here he tells the stories of the poorest of Thailand's poor.
