The Sisters of Charity of New York are committed to healping end the tragedy of human trafficking. Yesterday, January 11, was National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. In union with those who are committed to this fight, we are asking all to join us in a daily prayer, which will continue until February 8th. Together we can make a difference.


St. Josephine Bakhita was born in southern Sudan in 1869. As a young girl, she was kidnapped and sold into slavery. She was treated brutally by her captors as she was sold and resold. She did not remember her name; Bakhita, which means “fortunate one,” was the name given to her by her kidnappers.
