The International Day of Prayer and awareness against human trafficking, February 8th, 2022
“The Power of care – women, economy and human trafficking” is the theme for the 8th World Day of Prayer and Reflection against human trafficking, on the next 8th of February, 2002.
The theme’s choice continues the previous years, where we began to reflect on the connection between the economy and human trafficking. The 2022 edition proposes to focus on women. They are, in fact, the most affected by the violence of trafficking. At the same time, they have a fundamental and important role in the process of transforming the economy of exploitation into one of care.
