We started the year with much apprehension due to the prolonged impacts of COVID-19 on our beneficiaries and our operations. Massive job losses, hunger, food insecurity, conflict and displacement – our beneficiaries in Cambodia, Afghanistan, Vietnam and Singapore faced immense hardships and struggled to survive the mounting crises that threatened their lives and livelihoods.
At HAGAR, as we ploughed on amidst the challenges, many donors, partners, volunteers and supporters came around us, giving us encouragement and support in so many different ways. As 2021 comes to a close, we are thrilled to share the outcomes, progress and transformation of the lives of these survivors whom many individuals and organisations have contributed to.
As you look back at the impacts we have achieved in 2021, may you be encouraged knowing that thousands of lives were saved, healed and empowered through the work we did together.
