Restoring Life & Dignity


A Human Trafficking Hot Spot

Singapore is an attractive transit point and destination country for human trafficking.

Disguised as legitimate recruitment agents, traffickers trick their victims with fake job offers. Young foreign women are lured by the promise of good jobs, only to be trafficked in Singapore.

Hagar has worked in Singapore since 2014 raising awareness and funds for global programs. Hagar has provided victim support services since 2018.
