Study Shows Work of Religious Combatting Trafficking

A report on a large scale research project  conducted to find out the extent of involvement in anti-trafficking work by Catholic religious congregations in England & Wales was recently launched at a special reception in central London.

During the launch, Luke de Pulford, Director of Arise Foundation who carried out the research said: “Women religious are the un-sung heroines of the anti slavery movement. They are active in the worst-affected parts of the world – preventing, rescuing, and offering accompaniment over decades. But they are also active in countries of destination like the UK where they continue to make a huge contribution, giving their houses to be used as shelters, and so much more.”
