I am Sister Michelle Loisel, a member of the Daughters of Charity, an international community of Catholic Sisters serving in 94 countries around the globe. We serve others in a variety of ways, including: health care, spiritual care, education, women’s promotion, care of children and elderly persons, and working for justice for those denied basic human rights.
I was a nurse for many years, serving in the Middle East, Africa, India, and Haiti, as well as in other war-torn countries. The past seven years, I have served as Executive Director of Dawn’s Place, a safe, residential, and holistic program for American and International women who have been victims of sex trafficking. Even before working there, I have been an advocate for issues affecting the safety and wellbeing of women and children.
I have now been asked by the Leadership of the Province of St. Louise, USA to inaugurate a new position within the province: Coordinator of Provincial Response to Migrants and Issues of Modern Human Slavery.
This blog will serve as a way to educate and inform the public about Migration and Modern Slavery, as well as share our efforts of eradicating it from our world entirely. Please subscribe to receive updates.
