Salvation Army tackling human trafficking
THE PROBLEM OF human trafficking has the attention of the Salvation Army.
This was revealed by Lieutenant Colonel Verona Haughton, one of the organisers of the Army’s Women Leaders Conference which is currently on in Barbados.
Speaking to NATION ONLINE today at the Almond Beach Resort in Speightstown, St Peter, she said the church and charity has a responsibility to address the matter along with governments.
“Human trafficking is affecting so many areas. Women are the voice of the vulnerable and can help to stamp out modern day slavery. We believe we can empower them so that something can be done,” she said.
The conference which attracted about 123 women from across the Caribbean will conclude on July 15. (MR)
