“We don't heal in isolation, but in community.”
Survivors of sexual assault are often stigmatised and blamed for the abuses they face. Ban is a prime example of a survivor who suffered multiple traumas, initially arising from sexual abuse and then stigma from her community. This experience was so damaging, it led to Ban isolating herself. Throughout the countries that HAGAR operates from, we work closely with national and provincial governments, community agencies and international organisations, developing community campaigns to increase awareness of trafficking and support for victims.
