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.

Mary Ward Loreto Foundation in Albania had the pleasure to welcome the General Leaders, Jane Livsey CJ and Noelle Corscadden IBVM, who came to explore some of the Mary Ward mission in Albania.

 

They visited MWL staff at Mary Ward Loreto Offices and MWL Advice and Service Centre in Tirana also  Archbishop George Frendo OP at St Paul’s Cathedral, MWL Advice and Service Centre, Lezhe, MWL Social Business in Kallmet and on the way back to the airport we had a meeting with Bishop Dedë Gjergji from Kosovo. On the Friday evening we had a wonderful meeting of prayer, reflection and celebration with the Friends of Mary Ward in Imelda’s House.

We must not forget Saturday in Rreshen with the youth group there who inspired us with their stories. After this we visited a wonderful family in a village nearby. It was a very rich time for all of us.
