Human Trafficking awareness-raising in Croatia.


Work to raise awareness and conscientize the wider public is hugely important in the efforts to prevent human trafficking and exploitation. It also greatly helps in our efforts to widen the net of those who collaborate and engage with us in our mission. 

Sr. Victoria Šimić sends us news from Croatia, where she presents talks on Modern Slavery and anti-human trafficking work, to numerous parishes throughout her Diocese.

Particularly well-received was the presentation Sr. Victoria gave to the parishioners at Vinkovci. The talk was presented before the evening Mass, lasted for 35 minutes and was followed by open discussion, illustrating how engaged the community were in this theme.

After Mass, Sr. Victoria led the adoration in front of the Blessed Sacrament, together with the priests and parishioners praying for an end to this crime against humanity.

Such was the success of the programme that Sr. Victoria presented again at a parish near Djakovo and has arranged with a priest in another parish close by, to give the same presentation and lead the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, to take place on 5 March 2020.
