The Whole Journey

By breaking the cycle of exploitation and abuse, we are creating a world where everyone can live with dignity and freedom.

The Hagar Impact

We are an international organisation dedicated to the recovery of women and children who have endured extreme abuses. We do what ever it takes to help survivors of slavery, human trafficking and abuse in Cambodia, Vietnam, Singapore and Myanmar, to heal and rebuild their lives.

In Afghanistan, we provide humanitarian assistance for people who are displaced, vulnerable, or living in poverty.

 

“From seeing firsthand the high standard of care that Hagar provides to children who have been exploited. With so many organisations proclaiming similar work – Hagar truly sets the bar on a victim-centred approach.”

Melissa

“I love supporting Hagar because I was moved by the stories I heard about the plight of the women & children who had been enslaved.”

– Meg

“The people who benefit from Hagar’s programs have had an experience I could not even imagine, and I want to help them overcome it. I also appreciate that Hagar runs actual programs, not just advocacy.”

– Tess
