Cabrini University Hosts Human Trafficking Symposium

Cabrini University recently hosted experts on human trafficking to speak at a daylong symposium. The aim of this symposium was to fight to eliminate human trafficking by raising awareness about human trafficking. The symposium included discussions with experts and a keynote address from Peak Kim, the former chief of a human trafficking unit for the Delaware County District Attorney’s office.

The symposium is sponsored by The Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Cabrini’s Engagements with the common Good Human Trafficking class. In addition to the speakers at the event, organizers “will be accepting donations of gift cards, underwear, feminine hygiene products, and travel sized bottles of shampoo/soaps.” Donations will go to the Covenant House, the Salvation Army’s New Day to Stop Trafficking Program and the Cabrini Closet which supplies rescued victims of human trafficking necessary clothing items.

Manor College Provides Care for Injured Ukrainians

Students at Manor College were recently inspired to serve injured Ukrainians after listening to a Ukrainian Dialogue Session at the university. At this session, Marcy Kaptur, Ohio Congresswoman, challenged every person in the audience to take action on the events that are occurring in Ukraine. Norma Hall, former Rotaract Club advisor at the university, took matters into her own hands and sought to address this need directly through the work of the club. Rotaract clubs and members “work side by side to take action through service,” so helping injured Ukrainians was a great aim of the club. She was able to get contact information for a Rotaract Club in Ukraine and they were able to partner in order to effectively work on this issue.

The clubs solicited donations from local hospitals and raised money through numerous bake sales. The Manor club also received an Allstate Grant for their project and received $100,000 worth of donated surgical instruments. The supplies were shipped to the Hospital in Ukraine and is being used by those that would not have had these resources otherwise.
