Bangkok, celebrated for its vibrant nightlife and sacred temples, also conceals an underbelly of drugs, violence and child trafficking. But amidst this darkness, shines a beacon of light. For more than fifty years, Father Joe, a combative Irish/American priest, has helped Bangkok’s slum children save their homes and themselves. Waging war on corruption, drugs, sex trafficking and the big corporates trying to displace the vulnerable, Father Joe has enabled over 80,000 children to go to school and rebuilt over 10,000 homes. This is the story of his Mercy Centre Mission.
