Our Readers Respond – Human trafficking

The article “Human trafficking: Preparing for a unique patient population” by Cheryl Green in the January 2016 issue of the American Nurse Today was very well done; excellent suggestions for identifying the victims and gaining trust. Human trafficking is a worldwide problem but many people do not believe that it exists in the U. S.

In 2012, with 47 other women, I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, in the Freedom Climb to call attention to human trafficking and raise money for projects to combat trafficking.  We raised over $350,000. The Freedom Climb has continued with climbs to the base camp of Mt. Everest, seven summits in Colorado, Italian Alps, and others. The next climb will be in Wyoming. Check out the website for more information.
