Human Trafficking & Slavery

I recently found the website of Shared Hope International:

"Shared Hope International exists to rescue and restore women and children in crisis. We are leaders in a worldwide effort to prevent and eradicate sex trafficking and slavery through education and public awareness."

The information on the website, including the online documentary, reveals a horrendous plague within our culture and throughout the world that is harming the souls and bodies of women and very young girls. May the Church reach out to the hurting victims to heal them and also help those who, enslaved to the lustful passions, do harm to themselves, their families, and the strangers whom they abuse.

Also check out for information on the immoral exploitation of human beings, who have been created in the image of God.

The Goose Girl is a painting by William-Adolphe Bouguereau. The painting is in the public domain.
