I already knew the Sisters Adoratrices and their « Project Hope » which accompanies women victims of trafficking in their reconstruction and their integration into the society where they live. The Sisters invited me to collaborate with them in the shelter they run for women in the first stages of their journey. I spend the night there once a week. There are women of every nationality and continent. At present most are Africans. We spend a good time together preparing the supper we will share and then doing the dishes and cleaning up.
The current group is francophone, very calm and very pleasant. At other times there have been English-speaking and Spanish-speaking women.
I also belong to the inter-Church group against trafficking, whose objective is to make the Catholic Church and the population aware of the reality of trafficking. We have prepared a beautiful Vigil for St. Bakhita’s feast.
