Caritas Internationalis (CI) and the Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant People co-organize an international conference on human trafficking within and from Africa, in Abuja, from 5-7th September 2016.
Sixty million people were either refugees or forcibly displaced in 2015. In Africa thousands of adults and children are being forced to flee conflict, poverty and persecution and are particularly susceptible to traffickers.
Caritas is committed to fighting against the sale and trafficking of men, women and children into slavery as beggars, prostitutes and forced labourers.
The conference gather Caritas organisations, African bishops conferences and religious orders, Christian and other faiths organizations, NGOs, international organizations and anyone committed to fighting trafficking in Africa and beyond.
