Trafficking In Person’s (TIP)  Hero 2019- Gabriella Bottani, cms, co-ordinator Talitha Kum.


We continue to rejoice in the selection of our colleague Gabriella Bottani as one of this year’s TIP heroes. The selection not only helps bring a spotlight on the issue of human trafficking, it also acknowledges the collaborative work of women Religious worldwide, working to prevent human trafficking; educate and raise awareness about the risks and impact of human trafficking; campaign against the crime of human trafficking and create vocational training opportunities to enable the vulnerable.

TIP Heroes are recognized for their tireless efforts—despite resistance, opposition, and even threats to their lives—to protect victims, punish offenders, and raise awareness of ongoing criminal practices in their countries and abroad.

On behalf of the US Embassy to the Holy See, Ambassador Callista Gingrich has issued a statement about the work of Gabriella and Talitha Kum, which is available at:
