Help victims of human trafficking recover from trauma, and break the cycle of exploitation!

Born into poverty, women migrant workers leave their families in search of better job opportunities in Singapore so that they could put food on the table, send their children or younger siblings to school, and enable their parents or children to seek medical treatment.

Exploiting their vulnerabilities, traffickers disguised as fraudulent recruitment agents deceive unsuspecting young women with fake job offers to work in Singapore, offering them a chance out of poverty. Even though they were promised decent jobs, victims are forced into sexual exploitation and forced labour when they arrive in Singapore.

Suffering physical and sexual abuse, psychological coercion, threats of harm against family, debt bondage, restrictions of movement, and confiscation of travel documents, these migrants struggle to break free.

Since 2015, HAGAR has been collaborating with the Singapore government's Inter-Agency Taskforce on Trafficking in Persons to provide victim care and raise awareness of this serious crime against migrant workers. Victims are referred to HAGAR's care upon rescue. Through trauma recovery, literacy and skills development, legal protection and reintegration assistance, HAGAR help survivors to start a new life with renewed hope for the future.

Your donation will empower these women to restore their broken lives, and help them achieve safety and self-sustainability in the long run.

About the Charity

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

We are in 9 countries worldwide. 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 recovery care and empowerment to young women who have been trafficked to Singapore and foreign domestic workers who have been exploited. 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.
