“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.
