Untoward health conditions or accidents cause extreme stress and financial strain. Over the years, HAGAR staff have had to make decisions that affect our clients’ health. Unlike for us in Singapore, in many of the countries we work in, medical treatment does not commence until you can make payment of a certain amount. For many of the beneficiaries in HAGAR’s care, their entire life savings would still be insufficient to consider treatment. Your gift in this area would provide them the assurance to proceed with surgery and post-surgery treatment and allow them to focus on recovery.

In 2018, the young child of a Hagar Cambodia beneficiary was experiencing severe pains and was unable to pass urine. The diagnostic scans from Cambodia showed that she was suffering from spina bifida, a condition that affects the spine. Doctors in Cambodia recommended surgery but the statistics weren’t positive – their experience with this condition was limited and their former patients had either become paralysed or did not survive the operation. Hagar Cambodia reached out to Hagar Singapore and the mother and child pair came to Singapore for medical treatment and the surgery which turned out to be a huge success. The 5-year-old child was able to pass urine normally and walk without pain. This was made possible by donors and supporters who gave generously. She is doing well today and excels in her English language class in school. But the COVID-19 pandemic hit them severely with soaring food prices and no jobs. Schools were closed and learning went online. Hagar Cambodia helped to support them with food aid, living sustenance and medical care. This year, as the situation improves, the family is faring better. Thank you for enabling survivors to receive the medical attention they need!
