This book charts a remarkable woman’s engagement with deep rural communities in South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal province – and in particular with the high numbers of brain-damaged children left stranded in huts all over the foothills of the great Drakensberg Mountains.

Esther Alm arrived in Bulwer in 1980 and finally left 30 years later. In that time, she won several awards for her work, a recognition that culminated in her Honorary Community Builder of the Decade Award in 2000, a distinction she shared with several others, including ex-President Nelson Mandela. Esther began a project called Hlanganani Nogothando which is isiZulu for ‘coming together with love’.

The fortunes of HNO, as described here, reveal a woman of courage and tenacity whose motivations emanated from her deep Christian faith, and in particular Christ’s injunction to heal the broken hearted and to set at liberty those who are bruised. Esther’s life and work reveals a deep synthesis between faith and social involvement that constantly enriches those around her.
