International Day of Prayer and Awareness against human trafficking: 8 February 2019

On February 8, 2019 let’s turn on a light against trafficking of persons, to celebrate the 5th edition of the International Day of Prayer and Awareness against human trafficking whose theme this year is:

“Together against human trafficking.”

The first edition of the IDPT was celebrated on February 8, 2015, by the will of Pope Francis, who in 2014 entrusted the International Union of Superiors and Superiors General (UISG / USG) with promoting this day. In these years, gathering in prayer has facilitated collaborating and overcoming the boundaries within which we operate, dedicated to our projects that, although very important, could lead us to cut ourselves off from the others. The great tragedy of trafficking urges us to overcome every barrier to join forces and collaborate for the common good.

This requires us to coordinate our actions and unite our strengths.

“Together against human trafficking” is the invitation addressed to everyone, each according to their own possibilities.
