Human Trafficking

National Prayer on Human Trafficking

Hon Minister Betty Amongi, Minister of Gender, Labour and Social Development addressing the participants at the Kololo Ceremonial Grounds

Human Trafficking continues to exist in the shadows and beyond the reach of the law putting millions at risk. Thousands of children, women, girls and boys are trafficked and enslaved everyday across the globe. Uganda is a source, transit and destination country for women, children and men subjected to human trafficking. It is against this background that John Paul II Justice and peace Centre (JPIIJPC), Uganda Episcopal Conference (UEC) and Association of the Religious in Uganda (ARU), in collaboration with Africa Faith and Justice Network (AFJN), Uganda Joint Christian Council (UJCC) and Inter-religious Council of Uganda (IRCU) organized a national prayer for creating awareness and promoting the rights and dignity of the victims of human trafficking. It was conducted on Friday 9th September at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds, presided by His Grace Arch Bishop John Baptist Odama and the chief guest was Hon Minister Betty Amongi, the Minister of Gender Labour and Social Development.
