We, the Religious Sisters of Charity, inspired by the love of Christ, take a corporate stance against the Trafficking of Human Persons because we believe in the dignity of each and every human being and in their right to justice. At our General Chapters 2013 we committed ‘ourselves once more to be a voice for all who suffer injustice’.
As Religious Sisters of Charity we walk with and are moved by the suffering of children, women and men who are trafficked. Whenever possible we add our voices to those speaking against the evil of human trafficking and the economic and social systems and conditions that allow it to flourish. We commit ourselves to take concrete actions in the places in which we work to abolish human trafficking. We listen to and tell the stories of those who have been trafficked.
Each of us is committed to keeping the reality of trafficked persons central to our ministry and prayer.
We recognise the complexity of the issue of Human trafficking and we appreciate the diversity of approaches and cultural contexts in the areas in which we live and work. Our approach is to network and collaborate with others committed to the abolition of human trafficking.
