The container was opened on Thursday night by border officials in Harwich who made the discovery.
Seven of those inside the container were taken to hospital, including two pregnant women, but all were discharged.
Four Polish lorry drivers have been arrested, and the Home Office says that those discovered were from a variety of backgrounds including 35 Afghans, 22 Chinese, 10 Vietnamese and one Russian.
The Church can help reach out immigrants that are granted status to stay in the UK says an anti-trafficking charity.
Andrew Wallis the Chief Executive of anti-trafficking charity Unseen UK spoke about the discovery on Premier's News Hour.
He said: "You're seeing this huge global movement of people fleeing either conflict areas - so the war in Syria and Iraq, or the war in Eritrea and the Horn of Africa, or fleeing abject poverty and looking to the west as an opportunity to better their lives.
"Just asking the question - how can we help either as an individual, or a church to reach out to these groups and these individuals that are on the margins of our society?"
He added that the Church should reach out to people who come to the UK to escape war and persecution: "Some of these people will have a faith of their own and they'll be looking out to churches and other faith areas as well, so welcoming a stranger.
"There's a number of practical things in terms of helping people learn a language."
