The work shop entitled ‘’An open wound on the body of contemporary society,’’ (Pope Francis), will take a look at how Human Trafficking pervades contemporary society and the global and family responses towards healing.
Mr. Kevin Hyland, OBE, outgoing UK Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner will be the keynote speaker and afterwards will share the panel of guest speakers comprising Mia de Faoite, a survivor; Sr. Mary Ryan, rsm, (APT, MECPATHS and RENATE); Sr. Mairin McDonagh, rjm, (APT and RENATE) and JP O’ Sullivan (MECPATHS).

  • Held every three years, this major international event – WMOF – presents a wonderful opportunity to inform and raise awareness about Human Trafficking and how we can all play our part in bringing an end to this crime against humanity.
