The Urban Halo: a story of hope for orphans of the poor

203 pages3 hours


The inspiring story of one family's years in a Cambodian slum establishing an innovative ministry caring for over a thousand orphans.

"When Jesus moved from the most exclusive community in the universe to the worst ghetto in the world, seeking out prostitutes, lepers, and children, he sparked revolution in at least one man's life. My own." Craig Greenfield left a high-flying job to move to Cambodia and set up home with his wife in the Phnom Penh slums.

As the poor became their neighbours and their friends, a distinctive ministry began to emerge, transforming the lives of hundreds of vulnerable children, and empowering the poor to care for their own orphans. Not just a strong critique of orphanages, The Urban Halo offers the inspiring story of an alternative model of care for vulnerable children.
