“Hagar operates in countries that have been through deep levels of trauma and I am especially drawn to Hagar’s model of care that focuses on each survivor’s unique journey to wholeness. I believe that Hagar’s commitment to providing high quality trauma-recovery care for survivors of slavery, human trafficking and abuse; as well as its commitment to empower communities will greatly impact the countries we work in and will make a significant impact in ending the cycle of violence and abuse.”
Geetha has taken up her role in March 2017 and is based in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
