Church Support

We would love to come and share with your church family about our work and mission.

The name Hagar comes from the biblical story of Hagar found in Genesis 16 & 21. This is a story that is found in the Christian, Jewish and Islam faiths and is about Hagar, the first recorded slave in written history.
When Hagar was cast out of her employer’s home, an angel of God found her hopeless, alone and crying in the desert. In response to how God sought her out in her hopelessness, Hagar declared, “You are the God who sees me.” She returned home, but fourteen years later was cast out of the home permanently due to her employer’s ongoing jealousy.
Hagar returned to the desert and wandered there without hope. Finally, when their water ran out, she placed her son under a bush and walked away to weep at a distance, as she could not bear to watch him die. An angel of God called to Hagar and said, “Do not be afraid; God has heard the boy crying.”
This angel reminded Hagar of God’s blessing and provided a spring of water for them. They survived and prospered, and Ishmael became a great nation as God had promised
The story of Hagar and her son, Ishmael, is the story of millions of exploited and trafficked women and children today. Our organisation seeks to see and provide a kind hand of support to those struggling now just as God did for Hagar all those years ago.
If your connect group or church might be interested in having a Hagar representative come along and share about this story and our work, please contact us, we’d love to meet you.
