Hagar International works with women, children and young men in Cambodia, Vietnam and Afghanistan who have been victims of human rights abuses including trafficking , slavery, torture and sexual exploitation. Hagar’s commitment is to ‘Do what it takes for as long as it takes’ to restore a broken life. Hagar is so effective at helping people heal and go on to live fulfilling lives, that they are employed to train others from non government organisations, including World Vision, Nvader and are in partnership with TEAR fund.
In 2011 we visited the work of Hagar in Cambodia and Vietnam with our family and saw first hand their incredible work. We were so encouraged to see the life transforming work of Hagar, which includes protection and recovery and counseling, transition and reintegration into society, including economic empowerment and social enterprise. There are powerful and inspirational stories and factual information about this is on their website: https://hagarinternational.org/new-zealand/our-work/what-we-do/
In 2015 myself and a group of friends joined together to raise awarness and funds for Hagar International. We ran an Art and Craft Exhibition in 2015 and raised just over $8000 for Hagar.
Next month (March 12) this group will be taking part in “The Stadium to Surf” walk/run. We will be walking with some friends and we will be HANDCUFFED FOR HAGAR – to raise funds and awareness for Hagar International to fight human trafficking.
