Little Flower Parish CWL members and families with the leadership of Fr. Prince Sarpong and President Carolyn Lepage participated in a Red Sand prayer service on June 26.

The  prayer service is held in conjunction with IWIN – I’m Worth It Now, as part of a human trafficking awareness campaign. IWIN has partnered with the Catholic Women’s League of Canada in reaching out to those struggling to escape human traffickers. IWIN works with human trafficking investigators and survivor support programs such as Hope Restored Saskatchewan and Reset Society of Calgary, assembling and providing backpacks of necessities for survivors of human trafficking.

As part of the Red Sand Prayer Service in Leader, SK, those in attendance were invited to sprinkle red sand in the cracks of the sidewalk in front of the church to provide a visual image of those who have fallen through the cracks, trapped and enslaved by human traffickers.
