Saint Josephine Bahkita, born in late 19th century Darfur (now western Sudan), was the niece of her village chief and lived a happy early childhood before being abducted and sold into slavery around age 7. Unspeakable suffering and torture was inflicted upon her for years as she was sold and kept in bondage for her teenage and young adult years.

On a trip to Italy as a servant, she encountered the Canossian Sisters in Venice and after some time with them, refused to leave. An Italian court ruled in her favor and she became Sister Josephine Margaret Fortunata, remaining in Italy until her death in 1947. St. Josephine is known as the patron saint against modern slavery and human trafficking and her feast day is celebrated on February 8th.
