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.

The Conference, entitled “Ending Human Trafficking by 2030: The Role of Global Partnerships in Eradicating Modern Slavery,” was held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.

Archbishop Bernardito C. Auza, Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the UN, said that the purpose of the event is to “catalyze the coordination necessary to implement Targets 5.2, 8.7 and 16.2 of the Sustainable Development Goals, which commit the United Nations and its Member States to ‘eliminate all forms of violence against all women and girls in the public and private spheres, including trafficking and sexual and other types of exploitation,’ ‘take immediate and effective measures to eradicate forced labor, end modern slavery and human trafficking,’ and ‘end abuse, exploitation, trafficking and all forms of violence against and torture of children’ by 2030.”  Click here to find the video to the speech presented by Imelda Poole, IBVM…
