Nun awarded prize for work against human trafficking

CWN - October 21, 2013

Sister Eugenia Bonetti, an Italian nun who has devoted the past two decades of her life to assisting victims of human trafficking, is one of 43 winners of the 2013 European Citizens’ Prize, an award begun by the European Parliament in 2008.

“The Citizen's Prize is exceptionally important for the European Parliament and EU citizens,” said European Parliament President Martin Schulz. “You men and women represent the best, which is what we need in the European Union more than anything else.”
