Italian Convents as Safe Houses

Click here to read the Global Sisters Report article, "Italian convents act as safe houses in human trafficking portal," by Megan Sweas. Figuring prominently in the article is Sister Eugenia Bonetti, a Consolata Missionary who directs the Counter Trafficking Office at the Union of Italian Major Superiors.  Sister Eugenia has been involved in anti-trafficking efforts for a long time.  In fact, she made a presentation to the SCC JPIC coordinators in Rome in 2008.  We send prayers and good thoughts out to the women religious in Italy who, since 1995,  have saved 6,000 trafficked women from prostitution by opening their doors to them.
