Talitha Kum International Coordination
The Talitha Kum International Coordination Committee meeting took place in Rome 11-13 February. The committee comprises the International Coordinator of Talitha Kum, Sr Gabriella Bottani, and six Continent Coordinators. ACRATH member Sr Colleen Jackson attended this meeting as the Oceania Coordinator.
An important part of the meeting was preparing for the International Talitha Kum Assembly which will take place in Rome in September 2019. This Assembly will celebrate the tenth anniversary of Talitha Kum. Colleen commented on the richness of the experience in working face to face with this group that had previously met via video conference. She also paid tribute to the many Religious Women and their colleagues around the world “who do such deeply significant work at the grassroots to challenge and eliminate human trafficking and support the victims of this dreadful crime – sometimes at risk to their lives.”
