You can help rebuild lives after the trauma of trafficking
For Hoa, a survivor of human trafficking these services have been life-saving in her journey towards wholeness.
Many living in poverty, their desire to escape poverty and make a better life for themselves and their family is often exploited by traffickers. They are offered promises of employment, education or money, none of which traffickers ever deliver on.
For Hoa*, it was the promise of vocational training and a better job to help support her family that led her to being trafficked to Malaysia.
Working in a brothel, serving 15-20 men daily, Hoa was abused, isolated and exhausted. After a time Hoa became contracted HIV and became extremely ill. No longer able to serve clients, Hoa was kicked out onto the streets.
Destitute, Hoa held little hope for her future until the actions of a stranger set her on a journey back home, and on a path to healing and wholeness. Read more of Hoa’s Story of Hope here.
Your actions today will show tremendous kindness to a survivor of trafficking, like Hoa, helping them start on a path to a better future.
Your donation will help a woman heal from the trauma of trafficking and give her access to the services she needs to rebuild her life.
$275 covers the cost of any immediate medical and psychological needs of a survivor.
$400 gives a gift of a three day home visit by trained Hagar staff to provide trauma counselling, practical resources and help in accessing community services and programs.
$1,500 supports a woman through a whole year of skills training, helping a survivor earn a living and rebuild their future.
Help us continue our work in helping women and children move on from their past and build a better future.

“No one asks me about my past. Teachers and friends are so friendly and understanding. I don’t feel like I am less than anyone else, thanks to them,” Hoa, survivor of sex trafficking.
