“I have written this book to raise awareness of the wide spread domestic violence and
child abuse that is so prevalent in the Filipino culture. All too often children in the Philippines are robbed of their basic human rights to an education because they have to become parents to their siblings or have been sold for money.
Through my writing and work, it is my passionate goal to help stop domestic violence and child abuse by educating the very young as well as adults about the effects of physical, emotional, and mental abuse, and show those in need how and where to seek help.”
Note: When you order a copy of Sister Moon of the Philippines, a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to organizations that are working to preventing child abuse.
A thought provoking, riveting non-fiction novel of a young girl growing up in an impoverished household caught in a web of extreme poverty and domestic violence in a country devoid of cultural resources. She rescues and protects her younger siblings as she tries to save herself from their father while at the same time salvaging honor and family's dignity… A must read.
