At the Invitation of Sr. Margaret Barrett, Assistant General, 8 international English speaking Provinces sent a sister to meet in All Hallows, Dublin, 18-22nd February, 2007 to share their experiences on Human Trafficking. It is believed that more than 1.5 million people are trafficked each year.

The industry is said to be worth $36 billion in Europe alone.

Through it, human life is reduced to a commodity and this constitutes a tragedy of huge proportions for the victims who are powerless to escape. For all those who are trafficked we invite each community to pray the Morning Prayer attached on or around International Women’s Day.
