Albania Mission Against
Human Trafficking

Women's Project harvesting beans in Kallmet

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.

URAT Network in collaboration with Ministry of the Interior, the Municipality of Shengjin and Mary Ward Loreto, have organized an Awareness Raising Campaign against Human Trafficking.

“Art for Freedom” is the name of the campaign which was developed in Shengjin on July 30, 2017.

People were designing a world without trafficking and exploitation through art. Their Messages, their Paintings and their Playing of Music was proclaiming to everyone: ‘Put an end to Modern Slavery”. Children were with us playing, drawing and painting. There were also many visitors who wrote inspiring messages on the Wallpaper.

1,973 people visited the UN Gift Box in Shengjin, Lezhe. They were informed by our volunteers of the issues around Human Trafficking and also received flyers which included the helpline number and useful information on detecting and fighting trafficking in persons.
