St Vincent DePaul Care Centre to be home for human trafficking survivors
- as Roman Catholic community joins fight
The Guyana Women Miners Organisation (GWMO) in partnership with the Sisters of Mercy and more so the Roman Catholic community is set to open the first ever home for survivors of human trafficking which is aimed at ultimately giving them a fresh start in life.
GWMO President Simona Broomes has long decried the conditions under which human trafficking survivors are accommodated by the authorities. It has always been the desire of the organisation to provide a home for survivors. Over the two years that the GWMO has rescued women, some have returned to interior where they were being trafficked because, according to Broomes, they were not given the opportunity to really start over.
