Talitha Kum, combatting human trafficking in nearly 100 nations

In its 2021 Report, the international Talitha Kum network documents an increase in human trafficking victims, but evidences the religious sisters' network's always greater and more global effort to concretely fight, prevent and bring awareness to the scourge.

By D. C. L.

Despite the increase in human trafficking during the Covid-19 pandemic, Talitha Kum has boosted its activities to combat the scourge in the nearly 100 countries in which it operates.

This was evidenced in Talitha Kum's 2021 Report, published on Tuesday, summarizing the activities of the past year and outlining the commitments for the years to come.

Talitha Kum is a Rome-based international network of religious sisters dedicated to combatting and eradicating human trafficking. It was founded at the International Union of Superiors General (UISG).


Human Trafficking produces 150 billion dollars annually

There are tens of thousands of victims of human trafficking each year, 72% of whom are women.

According to statistics, human trafficking produces annual total revenue of 150 billion dollars.

The Report—now available in English and soon to be made available in Italian, Spanish and French—offers a summary of the activities of the past year and an outline of the commitments for the years to come.

The Report

The Report was produced by Talitha Kum with the contribution of the Global Solidarity Fund.

The research was made possible in collaboration with the Faculty of Social Sciences at the Pontifical Gregorian University, with the coordination of Professor Peter Lah and Sister Mayra Cuellar.

The collection and analysis of the data for the Talitha Kum Report involved all the regional and local networks.

Talitha Kum in nearly 100 countries

In 2021, the report shows, Talitha Kum saw a numerical and qualitative increase in its activities, despite the Covid-19 pandemic posing greater challenges to the network's preventative activities.

Talitha Kum is present in 92 countries with 55 national networks, an increase of five more than last year, and 6,039 people actively involved in antitrafficking in all continents.

It has reached 336,958 people globally.

Of these, 258,549 benefitted from prevention activities, while 19,993 are victims and survivors being supported and 58,416 are involved in networking, formation and capacity building.

Increased violence against women

Comboni Sister Gabriella Bottani, coordinator of Talitha Kum International, noted that in the past year, the network has seen great pain caused by violence, conflict and war.

“Violence against women has increased, as has been noted by all networks, especially in Latin America.”

The recent increase in those suffering from hunger, she also said, caused large movements of human beings.

“Trafficking," she warned, "is profoundly connected with these movements. “

During the year, Talitha Kum networks recorded a dramatic increase in the injustices suffered by migrating populations, who, she said, "are ever more vulnerable to sexual and labour exploitation, as well as to forced marriages and begging.”

'Tireless and prophetic efforts'

Sister Nadia Coppa, president of the UISG, thanked the members of the Talitha Kum Coordination Committee, for "the tireless and prophetic efforts" in fighting human trafficking, exploitation and in eliminating all forms of slavery.

“The commitment of Talitha Kum has grown throughout the years, achieving important results that fill our hearts with hope and of faith in the future, even though the road is long and there are many steps that still need taking,” she said.

The Report highlighted various 2021 initiatives, including the launch of the first Call to Action, the “Young Ambassadors of Talitha Kum” initiative, and the International Day of Prayer and Awareness against Human Trafficking.

I don't know, but when I look at the right in imperial politics, they are constantly bending over backwards to understand the left, appease them, see where they are coming from, find points they can agree on, look at their own side with a magnififying glass, find faults and problems, crriticize and even undermine, study accusations from the left and consider them, of which Mags here is an example.

When I look at the left, I see even old men with grandchildren willing to launch into obscene rants at the drop of a nickle.

If the left can be calm enough to articulate their points and express their position with coherence and reason, a discussion can be had.

Of course, the problem the left would then have is that they would lose every single discussion.

"Fold!" It was a childish joke! Wasn't even subtle, and yet it went right over your head, paper man.

Was it an obscene rant? My apologies, MagsJ. It was meant to be a humorous rant! "At the drop of a nickle?" You would do well to keep in mind, we have suffered Johnson's despicable conduct as leader for almost three years. Hardly a day passes when he isn't caught out in a lie!

"The drop of a nickle"!!! Where were you in 2016? That was when this nation voted to leave the EU. Those who voted to leave were persuaded to do so by 'messers' Johnson and Gove and one or two others. These folks appeared on our TV screens on a daily basis. Each time they opened their mouths, they misled the public. BREXIT has proved to be an absolute disaster for this nation.

The chief architect of the UK's catastrophic six year downward spiral is one Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson! I am sick of people pretending otherwise! I would ask you to overlook the occasional rant.

PS: That's not the correct spelling of 'criticize'. :)

I wouldn't normally explain a joke three times, but I will in this case:

Origami is the art of paper folding, which is often associated with Japanese culture. In modern usage, the word "origami" is used as an inclusive term for all folding practices, regardless of their culture of origin. The goal is to transform a flat square sheet of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques.

Forgive me if I offended. You described me as obscene. How would you describe Mister Johnson? Are you a supporter?

1. The public have a right to feel however they want, about him and his Premiership.

2. Supporters of All the UK’s political parties voted on the Referendum, in a democratic voting process.

3. The PM lives at No. 10, the Civil Servants work there and partied hard there.. fines were levied accordingly.

4. Would you like to change the 'vote of no confidence’ results.. because it sure does seem like you would / Would you like to change the PM having remained in Office.. because it sure does seem like you would.

Well that's cleared that up!

One or two tiny details you neglected to mention.

Throughout the pandemic the PM regularly addressed the nation. He issued instructions... "You cannot do this - you cannot do that..."

This? Attend the bedside of a dying friend or relative. They must die frightened and alone.

That? You cannot attend the funeral of a once frightened, died-alone, friend or relative.

Meanwhile, the PM, recall??? the man who, night after night, stood stony-faced, dishing out orders - directives, to an entire nation -

"You must not hold the hand of a dying husband - wife - partner - son - daughter - sister - brother - child - uncle - aunt - grandparent - no sad farewells permitted - each must die - alone and fearful . . ."

Meanwhile, (hush-hush - keep this to yourself) - in my my house we will have huge gatherings - and we will party hard - fuck all that rules nonsense!

"Fines were levied accordingly."

The rest of your post doesn't merit a response.

See Mags? This is why you don't negociate with terrorists.

They demanded, had a tantrum even about needing their silly regulations (which had no effect on the propagation of a virus that was harmless to most of the population).

You gave it to them.

Now they want to crucify you for having given it to them.

These are not rational people Mags. The sooner you British conservatives accept this, the sooner you can stop trying to accomodate these nuts.

You're barking up the wrong tree. MagsJ fully supported "their silly regulations."

Rees-Mogg described Johnson's loathsome hypocrisy as "Fluff".

Bless their poor deluded hearts - Johnson supporters honestly believe that the electorate will forget his outrageous conduct. As was demonstrated with Brexit, it is easy to manipulate gullible souls in a democratic election. However, methinks it will be harder next time around - the public will be a little bit wiser, having witnessed sicks (sic) years of Johnson's lies! You can fool some of the people some of the time . . .

Oh come on, MagsJ. He set rules. Harsh rules. "No Parties" - "No Goodbyes". He then allowed parties to go ahead in his place of residence - his house. He sought to justify parties by saying it was his duty to say farewell to colleagues that were leaving for another job.

However, his rules prevented loved ones from holding hands and saying farewell to 'loved ones' who were 'leaving'.

This, from the 'loser'. Congratulations, MagsJ . . .

You have been seen to have successfully attempted to defend the indefensible. It is to be hoped that someone at Conservative Central Office has observed your efforts, and you can look forward to getting invited to a better class of soiree. Fingers crossed, you will get to rub shoulders with a higher class of sycophant.

You are the winner.

Cue music.

On to more important Global Matters. Your next mission, should you choose to accept it . . .

Mags, your maniacal laughter at something that wasn't even remotely funny clearly reveals a triggered mind.

It isn’t funny.. to you.

It is funny.. to me,

..no matter how you wanna put it, as I wouldn’t have bothered editing and posting all that if it weren’t.. and if that is your only evidence of me getting triggered, then it is you who is hellbent on proving such.

They demanded, had a tantrum even about needing their silly regulations (which had no effect on the propagation of a virus that was harmless to most of the population).

You gave it to them.

Now they want to crucify you for having given it to them.

These are not rational people Mags. The sooner you British conservatives accept this, the sooner you can stop trying to accomodate these nuts.

By the way, what's old Reese-Mogg up to these days? He still up and about?

You're barking up the wrong tree. MagsJ fully supported "their silly regulations."

Rees-Mogg described Johnson's loathsome hypocrisy as "Fluff".

Bless their poor deluded hearts - Johnson supporters honestly believe that the electorate will forget his outrageous conduct. As was demonstrated with Brexit, it is easy to manipulate gullible souls in a democratic election. However, methinks it will be harder next time around - the public will be a little bit wiser, having witnessed sicks (sic) years of Johnson's lies! You can fool some of the people some of the time . . .

You are merely speculating what you believe are my views, when I never stated my views.. try inquiring -instead of speculating- next time. Nice try though. ; )

The thing about the global lockdown is.. some wanted it, some didn’t, some still do.. the lockdown brought with it both positives and negatives, negatives.. which affected a global mental-health state of mind, in a very negative way.

____
Beginning with the first lockdown in China's Hubei province[3] and nationwide in Italy in March, lockdowns continued to be implemented in many countries throughout 2020 and 2021. On 24 March 2020, the entire 1.3 billion population of India was ordered to stay at home during its lockdown, making it the largest of the pandemic.[4] The world's longest continuous lockdown lasting 234 days took place in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2020. As of October 2021, the city of Melbourne, Australia, and certain cities in Peru and Chile spent the most cumulative days in lockdown over separate periods, although measures varied between these countries.[5][6]

A few countries and territories did not use the strategy, including Japan, Belarus, Sweden, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Tanzania, two states in Brazil and certain United States states.

Well that's cleared that up!

One or two tiny details you neglected to mention.

Throughout the pandemic the PM regularly addressed the nation. He issued instructions... "You cannot do this - you cannot do that..."

This? Attend the bedside of a dying friend or relative. They must die frightened and alone.

That? You cannot attend the funeral of a once frightened, died-alone, friend or relative.

Meanwhile, the PM, recall??? the man who, night after night, stood stony-faced, dishing out orders - directives, to an entire nation -

"You must not hold the hand of a dying husband - wife - partner - son - daughter - sister - brother - child - uncle - aunt - grandparent - no sad farewells permitted - each must die - alone and fearful . . ."

Meanwhile, (hush-hush - keep this to yourself) - in my my house we will have huge gatherings - and we will party hard - fuck all that rules nonsense!

"Fines were levied accordingly."


MagsJ wrote:The PM lives at No. 10, the Civil Servants work there.. what part of that are you not understanding? The PM is not their boss.

Oh come on, MagsJ. He set rules. Harsh rules. "No Parties" - "No Goodbyes". He then allowed parties to go ahead in his place of residence - his house. He sought to justify parties by saying it was his duty to say farewell to colleagues that were leaving for another job.

However, his rules prevented loved ones from holding hands and saying farewell to 'loved ones' who were 'leaving'.

This, from the 'loser'. Congratulations, MagsJ . . .

You have been seen to have successfully attempted to defend the indefensible. It is to be hoped that someone at Conservative Central Office has observed your efforts, and you can look forward to getting invited to a better class of soiree. Fingers crossed, you will get to rub shoulders with a higher class of sycophant.

You are the winner.

Cue music.

On to more important Global Matters. Your next mission, should you choose to accept it . . .

"Governments that are headed by a serial liar -- should we make exceptions, and allow (expect) them to break international law?"

I stated the facts, I didn’t state my position on them.

As much as I find your speculations about me amusing, I do not agree with them.. funnily enough. And I see that you are going with the usual standard “all Conservatives are evil” angle.. coz that’s all ya got.

You have no idea how much I go out of my way to help others.. or is it only the Left that have compassion and do random acts of kindness?

The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite.. ~MagsJ

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something important at some point in time.. Huh!? ~MagsJ

You’re suggestions and I just simply don’t mix.. like oil on water, or a very bad DJ ~MagsJ

Examine what is said, not him who speaks ~Arab proverb

aes Sanātana Dharma Pali: the eternal way ~it should not be rigid, but inclusive of the best of all knowledge for the sake of Ṛta.. which is endless.
