Threads of Hope
On April 24, 2013 the eight-storey Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh collapsed killing 1,134 garment workers and injuring more than 2,500 others. In the rubble of the building rescuers found labels for brands of clothing destined for Australia and other countries all around the world. At the time Pope Francis denounced as “slave labor” the conditions of the workers caught in this deadly collapse.
As we mark the anniversary of this event you are invited to pray with the members of ACRATH for an end to the exploitation of all workers especially those working in the garment industry. A reflections sheet can be downloaded here.
