Each year on the feast of St Josephine Bakhita, we celebrate the World Day of Prayer, Reflection and Action against Human Trafficking. Pope Francis described human trafficking as: a ‘form of slavery, a crime against humanity, a grave violation of human rights, an atrocious scourge, and it is all the more to be condemned when it takes place against children.’
