Abstract:

In May 2011, the CNN Freedom Project highlighted the story of a 7-year-old boy kidnapped off the streets of Bangladesh by a criminal gang that, according to authorities, for years snatched children, crippled them, and then forced them to beg. When this young boy refused—he was beaten, stabbed and mutilated. His injuries shocked everyone who saw the story. But one CNN viewer was so outraged, he took a stand. He offered to help the boy, and triggered a chain reaction of goodwill that spanned the globe—and changed the boy's life. In Operation Hope, CNN Sr. International Correspondent Sara Sidner charts the boy's remarkable journey and the people who made it happen—complete strangers, half a world away. It's a story of injustice and compassion—but also a story of hope.
