8th February – St. Josephine Bakhita: International Day of Prayer and Reflection Against Trafficking in Persons. They are just children! Not slaves!

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
