Pope Calls for Protection of Human Trafficking's Victims

Pope Calls for Protection of Human Trafficking's Victims

Sunday, 10 February 2019 09:37 AM

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis has exhorted governments to root out the causes of human trafficking and protect victims.

Francis made the appeal while addressing faithful in St. Peter's Square on Sunday. He encouraged people to denounce instances of exploitation and modern slavery and to resist indifference to victims' suffering.

He said many Catholic nuns fight human trafficking and urged everyone to join forces to combat the crime.

Francis specifically urged governments to take decisive action on "the causes of this plague and see that the victims are protected."

Many women and minors who left African and eastern European countries to escape poverty have been forced to work as prostitutes in western Europe.

Poor people in many parts of the world work in agriculture, domestic work and manufacturing while enslaved or otherwise exploited.
