Actions for July 2020
The UN World Day Against Trafficking in Persons is held on 30th July each year. As we prepare to mark this day later in the month perhaps we could focus on raising awareness about this heinous crime. It is estimated there are over 40 million people in slavery in our world today and most of these are in the Asia Pacific Region. You may be interested in arranging a display or forum to inform others and raise awareness about the crime of human trafficking for forced labour and sexual exploitation or request that a prayer for all who work to eliminate human trafficking be included in weekend liturgies.
ACRATH holds it annual fundraising appeal during the month of July. Without the generous support of donors ACRATH would not be able to continue working to eliminate human trafficking and slavery. Making a donation to ACRATH could be another means of marking the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons. ACRATH is now able to accept donations online.
