“I feel grateful and completely trust in Hagar’s support…Before I went to Cambodia, I only had my family, but now when I come back to Vietnam I have a second family, that is Hagar.” 

 This Hagar Vietnam client was 18 years old when she was trafficked to Cambodia to work. Once she was freed, Hagar worked with local authorities to organise for her to return to Vietnam and have worked with her to plan some vocational training since.

In August 2022:

  • 77 survivors of severe abuse received Hagar recovery services
  • 14 new survivors started their recovery journeys with Hagar
  • 92 individual counselling sessions were provided to existing clients and their families
  • 5 clients were reintegrated back into their communities this month
  • To raise awareness about human trafficking, Hagar helped organise two community events in July in partnership with the Yen Bai Women’s Union. These community events involved presentations and games and were attended by approximately 1000 people, who all now know a little bit more about how to keep themselves safe

Recent Prevention Projects

Not only do our team in Vietnam provide expert recovery services to survivors of severe abuse, but together with our donors, they also do all that they can to raise awareness and prevent abuse from happening in the first place. Read about some of the prevention activities the Vietnam team have conducted recently below!

Meeting with the US Ambassador! 

In May 2022, the US Ambassador invited Hagar staff and representatives from Blue Dragon, World Vision and Pacific Links to a coffee meeting to discuss the human trafficking situation in Vietnam.
 
At the meeting, participants shared about some of the factors contributing to human trafficking and some of challenges that they face in their prevention efforts.
 
The US Embassy and the Government of Vietnam are working together to combat human trafficking and the Ambassador said that this meeting was very useful! Hagar staff were honoured to be part of it.

Check out this video!

The Hagar Vietnam team produced this video to help raise awareness about human trafficking across the country. This project was funded by the United States Department of State and outlines three common trafficking scenarios.

Covid-19 Update: August

 

Businesses and schools have now both re-opened. Vietnam is also the first country in Southeast Asia to exempt foreign travellers from all testing, vaccination and quarantine requirements. Over 950,000 international visitors have travelled to Vietnam in the first seven months of 2022.

In August, the Hagar team let us know that some new sub-variants of Omicron have appeared. This situation is being monitored
