On 23 May 2024 in Rome, a wide array of civil society leaders and groups marked the exceptional contribution of Catholic sisters to the anti-trafficking movement, at the second annual Sisters Anti-Trafficking Awards.

MC’d by eminent Vatican broadcaster, Delia Gallagher, the event honoured three sisters, Sr. Grasy Luisa Rodrigues FDCC from India, Sr Anne Victory HM from the USA and Sr. Marie Claude Naddaf RGS from Lebanon, for their anti-trafficking efforts.

Testimony speeches were given by Mary Mugo, a Talitha Kum Youth Ambassador from Kenya, Nasreen Sheikh, a survivor advocate originally from Nepal; and Kevin Hyland, formerly the UK Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner and now the Chair of Arise. 

The keynote was delivered by Sr. Nathalie Becquart, Undersecretary of the General Secretariat of the Synod, who underlined how vital it is to listen to victims and survivors and to serve those on the peripheries in general.
