Medical Mission Sisters participate in “Human Trafficking Awareness Month” (January) in many different ways. In Philadelphia, Sister Teresita Hinnegan continues her decade-long efforts to help people in many areas of life learn more about human trafficking. She is now working with a group to set up protocols to help hospital staff better identify the signs of women and girls who are being trafficked and what they can do to help these victims. Statistics show that 70 % of trafficking victims visit a hospital for care, so it is an important site for awareness and assistance.
