‘Freedom has somehow been out of my reach. Since a sinless baby the freedom and many
rights were taken and stepped on. Freedom is my basic human right, and I will run away
as many times as I have to , in order to breath its fresh sweet air that calms my
wounded heart’.(E. European Victim of Trafficking)

15 Participants from 8 European Countries met in March, 2009
Field Trips : A) Police work and anti trafficking.
B) SHOP:
A social, legal and economic support for Prostitutes.
All people are created in the image of God. We,
the religious of Europe, believe in a world
where everyone has a right to human dignity.
Human dignity cannot be compromised.
Therefore we labour to free the world from
trafficking and exploitation.

We are sent by Christ to take a prophetic stance against the evil
of trafficking and the exploitation of human persons. We
commit ourselves to putting all our passion for humanity into
this work.
With our strengths of companionship in dispersal and with our
different qualities of interconnectedness and our charisms, we
desire to further develop a network against trafficking.
We will work closely together, in collaboration with people from
all cultures and creeds, in the fields of prevention, advocacy and
assistance, for the victims of trafficking.
We desire for the world to be freed from such evil therefore we
invite others to join us in this mission.
