World Beyond Tears : Maverick priest Father Chris Riley has always made it his business to help children most in need: the homeless, the abused, the desperate. Through his charity, Youth Off The Streets, he has provided shelter, support, counseling and education - and, most importantly, love and understanding - to kids on the edge in Australia, Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe. But on Boxing Day 2004, he faced his biggest challenge yet. The devastating force of the Boxing Day tsunami left hundreds of thousands dead and almost as many children orphaned. In Banda Aceh, a region already crippled by civil war and religious strife, Father Chris witnessed heartbreaking scenes; images and stories which drove him to defy incredible emotional, practical and cultural odds in the belief that he could, and should, help. World Beyond Tears is the extraordinary story of Father Chris's global mission to take kids off the streets - whether in troubled parts of Australia, in the slums of Albania or the Philippines, or in the flattened villages of Banda Aceh. It's the story of how a single individual can make a difference to millions of lives. It's a story you will never forget.
