WD Against Trafficking in Persons

Trafficking in persons is a crime against humanity.

On the occasion of the World Day against Trafficking in Persons we would like to remind the international community of the crime of human trafficking, which affects every country. People are trafficked within local settings as well as across international borders for domestic servitude, sexual and labour exploitation, begging, forced marriage, organ removal, surrogate wombs and criminal acts.

Franciscans International is the co-signataire of a declaration against this criminal practice. Read the declaration here
