  • "This volume recounts the story of Luma Mufleh, a young Jordanian emigre who created a soccer program in Georgia (U.S.) for young refugees from war-torn nations, telling the story of a determined woman profoundly impacting the lives of dozens of impoverished families. Mufleh forged a team, the Fugees, out of recruits from such disparate lands as Liberia, Sudan, Zaire, Kosovo and Afghanistan. She offered youngsters traumatized by civil war and genocide the chance to enjoy a familiar pastime, often acting as a surrogate mother for children whose struggling parents worked long hours to support them."@en
