Help families stay united and support loved ones who have suffered extensive trauma.
Survivors struggle to share the truth about their experience with family members, especially if they’ve been exploited sexually. It often results in feelings of shame – for both the survivor and the family – and in some cultures, she risks death for bringing dishonour to the family name.
Reintegration means creating a safe environment for survivors to heal. HAGAR help families understand the survivor’s trauma and how they can support her when she returns. We also organise workshops and prepare educational materials to counter societal stigma; greater awareness provides protection against trafficking and exploitation in vulnerable communities.
