Feast Day of St. Josephine Bakhita

Human trafficking is the modern-day term for slavery. Women, children and men are bought and sold, beaten, abused and sometimes killed as they are traded like commodities on the invisible trafficking markets across the world.

On 8th February, as a Christian Community we take part in the International Day of Prayer and Awareness Against Human Trafficking. The day marks the feast of Saint Josephine Bakhita, Sudanese woman who was sold into slavery, abused but later freed.
