“This network is responsible for maximizing and sharing the resources we religious already have to prevent and raise awareness about human trafficking and denouncing it with the possible assistance and protection of victims and the most vulnerable.”

The Catholic Church already has a valuable resource in the fight against human trafficking: the dedication and commitment of the religious.

Project Coordinator, Talitha Kum
“We are sisters, we move within the parameters of religious life, we can not go to a club in the middle of the night to rescue a prostitute who has been brought there. But we can focus on prevention, we can talk to people, because we have students who have been recruited.”

Trafficking human beings brings millions of dollars to mafias that exploit the operation on a multinational scale.

Sister Estrella Castalone
Project Coordinator, Talitha Kum

Religious are especially present in places where poverty prevails. The network of Talitha Kum warn potential victims of trafficking and work to prevent the cycle of kidnapping, exploitation and suffering.
