In Singapore, HAGAR helps provide recovery care for women and girls who have been trafficked into the country for sexual and labour exploitation. These women came to Singapore looking for work to support their families back home but were deceived by false job offers by criminal syndicates who seek to exploit their vulnerabilities. Together with the Singapore Government's Inter-Agency Taskforce for Trafficking in Persons, we work closely to help survivors overcome the deep trauma that they have endured, and empower them with literacy and skills to start a whole new life again.

Upon rescue by the Singapore authorities, these survivors are referred to HAGAR's care. Because of their backgrounds of trauma and abuse, they are plagued by 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.

Please consider making a donation to help them get well again! Funds will go towards providing for their medicines, consultation fees, treatment costs and associated aftercare costs. Thank you for your kind giving and care towards exploited women and girls.

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.
