Albania Mission Against
Human Trafficking

MARY WARD LORETO is planting hope with a human rights approach to combating modern day slavery. This challenging mission is implemented through works of justice, education, grass roots action and systemic change. The aim is to eradicate poverty, the prime cause for human trafficking.

Albania cannot be indifferent to human trafficking and we have to fight together to stop this global issue. On 8 February 2017 the Church in Albania marked this International day of Prayer, reflection and action Against Human Trafficking. URAT network and the Catholic Church, in collaboration with Archbishop George Frendo OP, organized a special prayer service at the Cathedral of St. Paul in Tirana.

We prayed together for the victims of trafficking, we made calls to stop this action and lit the candles for the victims. We showed two short locally made films led by members of URAT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCQrJovtYqI
