YOUNG PHILANTHROPISTS JOIN POPE FRANCIS AND “TURN ON A LIGHT” AGAINST HUMAN TRAFFICKING

17 Feb

Simn-Global.org – In advance of the first-ever international day of prayer and reflection commissioned by the Vatican and held on Sunday, February 8th, entitled “Turn on a Light against Human Trafficking,” young philanthropists Patrick Gage and Gabriela Isler pledged their commitment to Pope Francis’s campaign against human trafficking by signing the Joint Declaration of Religious Leaders against Modern Slavery issued by the Global Freedom Network, an ecumenical organization formed by Pope Francis to eradicate modern slavery around the world.

Gabriela Isler, Founder and CEO, Universe of Blessings Fund and Miss Universe 2013, has received a public humanitarian blessing from Pope Francis in recognition of her philanthropic efforts in the Philippines following Typhoon Haiyan and her mission to empower young women and girls and decrease the rates of adolescent pregnancy. Ms. Isler, a member of the Washington Speakers Bureau, is speaking out about the women victimized by human trafficking and is deeply engaged in the mission of the Global Freedom Network to end modern slavery by 2020 and for all time.
