Human trafficking is prevalent and is happening in Singapore. Lured with false job offers and promises of a better life for their families, vulnerable women and young girls are trafficked to Singapore for sexual and labour exploitation.

Subjected to oppressive working conditions, victims have no way of escape with restrictions of physical movement and limited access to remedies. Read about Singapore's first labour trafficking conviction and sentencing of two managers of a nightclub in Boat Quay who exploited three Bangladeshi women - https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/trafficking-singapore-labour-crime-boat-quay-justice-victims-12423400

Upon rescue, and partnering with the Singapore Government's Inter-Agency Taskforce for Trafficking in Persons, HAGAR provides recovery care, empowering survivors with literacy and essential skills to start a whole new life.

Because of their backgrounds of trauma and abuse, they are plagued by all sorts of physical ailments, gynaecological health issues, mental health conditions among other sicknesses that warrant critical treatment. Many of them are reluctant to seek medical attention because of the hefty fees if they require long-term treatment.

Your donation will go towards providing for their full medical check, medicines, consultation fees, treatment costs and associated aftercare expenses.

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.
