Stories of survivors of sex-trafficking.

Sex trafficking. We hear about it on the nightly news and in special interest stories from around the world, but it occurs daily in communities all around us. Every year, thousands of young women are forced into sexual exploitation. Most are under the age of 18. The damage this causes to their emotions and souls is immeasurable.

But they are not without hope.

The White Umbrella tells stories of survivors as well as those who came alongside to help them to recovery. It describes the pain and the strength of these young women and those who held the “white umbrella” of protection and purity over them on the road to restoration.

This book offers principles and guidance to anyone with a heart for these hurting young women and a desire to help. It is an ideal resource for individuals or organizations seeking to learn what they can do to assist these victims in becoming whole again.

From the Back Cover:

White, an adjective meaning "Free from spot or blemish": as (1): free from moral impurity : INNOCENT (2): marked by the wearing of white by the woman as a symbol of purity.

Umbrella, a noun meaning: 1. A device for protection from the weather consisting of a collapsible, usually circular canopy mounted on a central rod, or  2. Something that covers or protects.

Every year over 100,000 girls in the United States are forced to do someone’s sexual bidding. Most of them are between the ages of 9 and 19.

This is not some faraway, foreign problem. This is in our own neighborhoods, our own towns and cities.

Throughout these pages read the stories of these girls and the people who have come alongside them to hold the white umbrella of protection and purity over them on the road to restoration. See the need for these protecting, caring partners. Learn what it means to love and care for these survivors in action, prayer, and support.
