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.

MWL Foundation’s First Gala Fundraising Event, on December 14, 2018, was a big success!

100 Guests gathered and enjoyed the night which included an Auction, Dinner and Entertainment.

We would like to thank all the guests who joined us during this MWL First ever Gala Fundraising Event.

Many thanks to all who sponsored many of the various parts of this Fundraising Event:

Wintergarten Restaurant, Aroma Therapy, MWL Social Business, The Balkanista, Hotel Tirana International, Be Puzzle, Telajo & Vere, Hotel Restorant Rapsodia, Hoteli  Gjuetise, Tirana Yoga, DJ Benito, Next Promotion and Hotel Colosseo.

The Gala night celebrated 5 years of MWL Mission working against Human Trafficking throughout Albania. It was an opportunity for networking between our many collaborators and partners, and a chance for our growing support base to learn more about our work and to meet the beneficiaries of our projects.

The theme of this year was “Planting Hope and Empowering Albania.”

We believe that Albania, with the help of organizations and partnerships, has the potential to become her own source of hope and empowerment. In the work that we do at MWL, we know that the empowerment of the individual, leads to the empowerment of a nation. Partnering with us for this event showed a commitment to the people of Albania and the work we all do to fight against human trafficking and to ameliorate the Albanian society.

The event included a multiple course meal during which individuals from the MWL staff, volunteers, and beneficiaries shared their stories and testaments of the work of MWL. The event also included entertainment and an auction. There was so much fun throughout the evening and all for a very good cause! 

Thank you to all who sponsored a table, donated an auction item, sponsored the decorations, set up materials, or gave any other form of support.

We are looking forward to seeing you all again next year, meanwhile enjoy the photos of the Gala Night!
