The COVID-19 pandemic has led to an increase in hunger and human trafficking in many communities and prompted the International Union of Superiors General (UISG) which represents over 650,000 Sisters to initiate an international campaign to focus attention on these and other urgent humanitarian challenges.
The #YouAreMySister campaign highlights problems that women religious believe are not getting adequate attention in a coordinated way at national and global levels.
