European Anti-Trafficking Day: religious on the frontlines against human trafficking

  • Organisme: Vatican News

A recent conference organized in Paris by the Sovereign Order of Malta shone the light on the need to constantly take action against human trafficking, where women and children are the main victims.

With aim of stepping up its efforts to prevent and combat human trafficking, the Sovereign Order of Malta has committed to collaborate, more closely, with authorities in Lagos, Nigeria, where the journey of so many women, trafficked mainly for prostitution, begins.

Lagos is also home to the “Bakhita Empowerment” center, an initiative of the Order of Malta with the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Louis for protecting and rehabilitating young women who are victims of prostitution and human trafficking when they return to Nigeria.
