The annual Sydney Freedom Climb is back. This year, the Climb will be hosted at Crosslands, Hornsby Heights.
Freedom Climb aims to raise the issues of human-trafficking, exploitation and modern-day slavery of women and children.
“We are raising awareness and funds for women and children caught in human trafficking, exploitation and modern day slavery, with a specific focus on Jogini girls of India,” Freedom Climb Australia Director Kate Rodwell says.
“With over 50 projects in more than 30 countries, Freedom Climb brings hope and transforms the lives of women and children who are exploited, enslaved and trafficked. Our initial goal is to affect the lives of 10,000 women and children by supporting projects that break the cycles of poverty, shame, slavery and despair.”
Community members are invited to join the climb, help on the day, join the prayer team during the climb, sponsor a climber or donate goods and funds to the project.
“We would love to see many people come and join us so we can really make a difference,” says Ms Rodwell.
