“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 Kim to return to Vietnam and have worked with her to plan some vocational training since. 

In August 2021:

  • 77 survivors of severe abuse received Hagar recovery services
  • 79 individual counselling sessions were provided to existing clients and their families. Hagar also launched two group counselling options on Zoom
  • 6 clients received career counselling
  • Due to COVID, there has also been lot more talk in the national media about mental health. Hagar is leveraging this opportunity by providing webinars, videos and online posts to vulnerable community members through Hagar’s online platforms. Topics have included stress management and non-violent communication

 

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!

“I and a lot of people in the group have realised our wrong violence behaviours, the pain we left for our wives may not end immediately but joining the group is the first step towards a new life together, and we are both ready and grateful for this change.” 

 This man is a participant in a male peer group that Hagar has helped facilitate as part of their prevention activities.
