BENEFITING: Somaly Mam Foundation
EVENT DATE: Feb 24, 2012
I am part of a group of individuals each raising money for various charities by climbing Mount Snowdon in fancy dress and larking about at the summit. My chosen cause is the Somaly Mam Foundation.
"Co-founded by sexual slavery survivor, Somaly Mam, the Foundation works to eradicate human trafficking, liberate its victims, and empower survivors so they can create and sustain lives of dignity. The Foundation supports survivor rescue, shelter, and rehabilitation programs globally with a special focus on Southeast Asia, where the trafficking of women and girls, some as young as five, is a widespread practice. The Somaly Mam Foundation also runs awareness and advocacy campaigns in North America and around the world that shed light on the crime of human trafficking and focus on getting the public and governments involved in the fight to abolish modern day slavery."
