About Hagar international:
Hagar was established in 1994 in Cambodia to serve individual women and children who have survived severe exploitation and human rights abuses. In 2009, Hagar expanded its unique model of long-term, individualized care to Afghanistan and Vietnam, and more recently we now also deliver services in Singapore, Myanmar, and the Solomon Islands. In each unique context, Hagar is committed to the whole person for the long term. We believe that with the right support and capabilities people can recover and take the lead in their own journey to wholeness.
Hagar International in Afghanistan has been operating since 2009 and runs a protection shelter for abused boys, and another shelter for girls that have been trafficked/forced into marriage. Hagar also operates Child-Friendly Spaces in IDP camps, humanitarian relief projects, Primary Health Care, resilient livelihoods programs, and most recently an earthquake response program.
