International Day of Prayer for Victims of Human Trafficking 2022

(Version Français)

Beyond the Dark

The Salvation Army is deeply committed to responding to modern slavery and human trafficking. We have a theological and historical mandate and we believe prayer is foundational and a unique way of responding towards a world free from exploitation.

Every year, the fourth Sunday in September is set aside as the International Day of Prayer for Human Trafficking and provides an important focal point for prayer to support people experiencing and who experienced trafficking and those working with survivors. This is a day for The Salvation Army and friends around the world to lift their voices and corporately cry out for justice and freedom.  

Please join us on Sunday, September 25, 2022 in reflecting and participating in this year's International Day of Prayer for Human Trafficking.
