MIA Welcomes Ground-breaking Agreement to Eradicate Modern Slavery and End Human Trafficking

Mercy International Association welcomes the ground-breaking agreement between Catholic, Anglican and Muslim leaders announced at the Vatican on 17 March, to eradicate modern slavery and end human trafficking across the world by 2020, through the Global Freedom Network.

Eradicating human trafficking is a priority issue for Mercy International Association at both grassroots and advocacy levels. In the 40+ countries where Sisters of Mercy and our Partners in Ministry serve, we support trafficked persons, provide programmes to educate about exploitative practices and lobby for change.

The establishment of the Global Freedom Network is a sign of hope for the suffering and a source of encouragement to all people of goodwill committed  to ending modern slavery.
