“I have found Dr. Katherine Welch is “relentless” in her commitment to make an impact in the fight against human trafficking. I first met Dr. Welch at the Global Missions Health Conference in Louisville in 2010. Since that time Katherine has been an amazing resource, providing consultation specifically for ReachGlobal’s prevention project with national partners in West Bengal. Her expertise in the field of health and human trafficking has made a huge impact in providing direction for our prevention project in West Bengal. Dr. Welch serves sacrificially and is ready to come alongside other serious about making a difference.” – Sharon Mall, ReachGlobal Asia Justice Initiatives Catalyst
