Human traf­fick­ing for the pur­pose of pros­ti­tu­tion has been com­pared to the slav­ery of Africans in terms of the num­ber of vic­tims it cre­ates. It is a glob­al indus­try, exploit­ing the flesh of very young girls who have grown up in dif­fi­cult cir­cum­stances and who are seek­ing a bet­ter life. This inter­na­tion­al ille­gal trade is extreme­ly well-organ­ised and high­ly prof­itable, yield­ing mind-bog­gling sums. Today’s sex indus­try is tru­ly glob­al and to com­bat this mod­ern slave trade the Com­mu­ni­ty set up the Anti-Human Traf­fick­ing Ser­vice.

In the ear­ly 1990s, Father Ben­zi launched the shar­ing in the streets expe­ri­ence in which con­tact groups meet up with women forced into street pros­ti­tu­tion and, once they had estab­lished a rela­tion­ship of trust, offered them a way out in the form of a wel­come in a Com­mu­ni­ty home.

We see them every night walk­ing the streets in the poor quar­ters of our cities.
We call them pros­ti­tutes but we know noth­ing them of them as peo­ple, of their girl­hood dreams or of their suf­fer­ing. Our encoun­ters with the hid­den suf­fer­ing of these young women, some of them still lit­tle girls, in which their right to wom­an­hood is being tram­pled under­foot, have con­vinced us of the urgency of fight­ing with and for them. The Com­mu­ni­ty was the first asso­ci­a­tion in Italy to do this, wel­com­ing them in and cre­at­ing homes espe­cial­ly for them where they could recov­er the dig­ni­ty denied them.
We must stop hid­ing this ter­ri­ble vio­lence behind the screen of “the old­est pro­fes­sion in the world”.
