9 All people are created in the image of God. We, the religious of Europe, believe in a world where everyone has a right to human dignity. Human dignity cannot be compromised. Therefore we labour to free the world from trafficking and exploitation.

10  We are sent by Christ to take a prophetic stance against the evil of trafficking and the exploitation of human persons. We commit ourselves to putting all our passion for humanity into this work.  With our strengths of companionship in dispersal and with our different qualities of interconnectedness and our charisms, we desire to further develop a network against trafficking.  We will work closely together, in collaboration with people from all cultures and creeds, in the fields of prevention, advocacy and assistance, for the victims of trafficking.  We desire for the world to be freed from such evil therefore we invite others to join us in this mission.
