Human Trafficking: Wells of Hope Offers Healing to Survivors

Sister Marie Claude Naddaf, R.G.S., has dedicated her life to the protection and empowerment of women and girls. As the coordinator of Wells of Hope, a regional initiative of Talitha Kum in Lebanon, she is active in anti-trafficking ministry, particularly prevention, awareness-raising and support to survivors.

“I needed to support the unheard, those who have no voice, in any possible way I could,” she said.

Moved by prayer, Sister Marie Claude and Wells of Hope are a positive force for survivors who were trapped in unimaginable situations at the hands of traffickers.

“I attempted to escape three times,” said a trafficking survivor. “Three times, they caught me. Three times, I endured the worst forms of torture.”

“Thanks to Talitha Kum’s program … I managed to stand on my own feet,” she said.
