Seasonal agricultural workers can fall victim to human trafficking and modern slavery. Kent is an area where some workers face tough conditions. The Santa Marta Group has organised two events in the county.
On 8 February 2020, members of the Bexley Deanery came together at St Stephen’s Church in Welling, to celebrate the feast of St Josephine Bakhita.
The Santa Marta Group under the auspice of the International Department is establishing in five Dioceses a programme which aims to combat the exploitation experienced by seasonal agricultural workers.
