Human trafficking

This is a modern day tragedy that needs more people to speak out publicly, raising awareness. It needs national charities like the Medaille Trust  founded by members of religious orders working together (one of my confrères is Chair of Trustees) and who have a growing network of safe houses throughout Britain for victims of trafficking. And it needs organised international action to try and stem the flow of the trafficking which is managed by  international networks of criminal gang masters who are making money from this modern day slave trade.
