RENATE President, Imelda Poole IBVM, has been facilitating a week-long series of presentations and homilies in the UK- to mark the European Day against Human Trafficking on 18th October.
Imelda has been conducting a series of information and awareness-raising events in schools and parishes in the UK. She has covered ground in both Heywood and Altrincham in the Greater Manchester area; Durham in the northeast of England and Sheffield/Swanwick in Derbyshire.
Throughout her presentations, Imelda has been sustained by the interest and support for RENATE’s work, which was evident at each and every venue. Of particular note, was the response of young people in their Secondary/Post-Primary schools, all of whom are horrified at the concept of human trafficking and eager to find out what they can do to help bring an end to this human suffering.
Imelda is looking forward to reading about the fundraising and awareness-raising events which students are hoping to undertake in the coming year, following on from her inspiring presentations.
Brigidine Sisters in the UK support the work of RENATE (Religious in Europe Networking Against Trafficking and Exploitation) by their involvement and prayerful support.
