Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Apr 2020, 11:59 PM

In this exceptional time when finances are uncertain for everyone, it is natural to focus on self-preservation, and to overlook those among us who are even more vulnerable to the effects of a global recession, with no way to survive this pandemic without the help of various charities. In establishing our monthly fundraiser campaigns, The Table Guy hopes to raise awareness and funds where possible, by creating avenues for our community to contribute.

In April 2020, we raise funds for Hagar Singapore, which continue to rehabilitate women and children survivors of human rights abuses, empowering them to get through this COVID-19 crisis and the crises yet to come.

About The Charity

HAGAR is an international NGO committed to the recovery and economic empowerment of women and children who are survivors of extreme human rights abuse, particularly in the area of human trafficking, gender-based violence, and sexual exploitation.

We are in 10 countries worldwide. For women and girls, the threat of sexual exploitation and abuse is grave, and 10% of these clients have intellectual disabilities. HAGAR receives into our care those who have suffered the worst of human conditions and many are referred to HAGAR by the local government and non-governmental organisations in the country. We walk the whole journey with each individual, ensuring holistic healing, legal and physical protection, social rehabilitation, education and economic empowerment for eventual reintegration into society.

In Singapore, we provide legal aid, trauma recovery services, and skills training for girls trafficked to Singapore for sexual exploitation. Further to that, Hagar also assists by coordinating their return to their home country and resettle them in their communities upon conclusion of their court hearings in Singapore.

The ultimate goal is to help each of these trafficked and abused survivors get over their painful past, realise their innate potential and put them on the path of self-sustainability where they will be able to help themselves in the long run. Our purpose is singular. We do whatever it takes for as long as it takes to restore a broken life.
