The Republic of China (Taiwan) sponsored the International Conference focusing on the Pastoral Orientations on Human Trafficking to effectively answer Pope Francis' call on February 10, when the Holy Father invited governments "to join forces to overcome this challenge. All of us, can and must work together to denounce the cases of exploitation and slavery of men, women and children."

About 200 participants attended this event hosted by the Migrants and Refugees Section of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development. The conference culminated in a private audience with Pope Francis.

In his address, Ambassador Lee expressed Taiwan's willingness to cooperate with the international community to protect human dignity. He listed the efforts made by Taiwan in this field, including the memorandum of understanding signed by Taiwan and 18 other countries on immigration affairs and prevention of human trafficking.

Ambassador Lee then introduced to the public a speaker from Taiwan: Dr. Chi Hui-Jung, CEO of The Garden of Hope Foundation, a Christian-based NGO specializing in assisting female victims and survivors of sexual abuses, domestic violence and human-trafficking.

In her address titled "Pastoral Commitment to Breaking the Chain: Anti-Human Trafficking in Taiwan," Dr. Chi explained the pastoral care her organization gives to all the victims, regardless of their nationality or religion. The staff members at the shelters respect every religion and help victims with finding new directions. She hoped the Church can use its influence to partner with more NGOs to make a greater impact in the fight against human trafficking.
