The book also includes numerous portraits and photographs of groups of children the organisation is providing food for.
The organisation Merhamet is still active today in many countries.
The editor was a young Munir Ekremov Šahinović (1910-1945), who would later become one of the most famous Bosnian and Herzegovian authors and reporters, specialised in the problems of migration of Muslims from Bosnia to Turkey, history and Turko-Bosnian relations.
