Against all odds, the photo of Haymar finally reunited with her family matched the painting she’d hung on Eden’s Dream Wall months before.
She was first separated from them when she traded rural life for a job in the city as a maid. Unsure about where to turn after escaping her abusive boss, Haymar took the help of a young man… only to learn that the shelter he gave was in a brothel. When Eden Outreach met her, Haymar had suffered eight years of traumatic sexual exploitation and abuse. As her body healed at Eden, Haymar became hopeful about her future. She began to dream of finding her lost family.
The Haymar Collection was inspired by Haymar’s enduring hope. Hope requires us to believe that a renewed future is possible when everything around us suggests otherwise. Hope pulls us through the darkness if we can just hold on tight enough. This collection features the word “hope” in Burmese, a word that Haymar now sees in the loving embrace of her family.
Eden’s programs are based in South-East Asia which is host to more than half of the global total of human trafficking victims.
In 2014 Eden began its programs in Myanmar, a nation that has been a hotbed for human trafficking for years. Political instability, natural disasters, and internal ethnic infighting have led to a devastating lack of opportunity for the people of Myanmar.
Poverty and political unrest are at the heart of Myanmar's human trafficking crisis, which has only grown more severe over recent years. The economic collapse, brought on by the pandemic and political crisis, has exacerbated the level of human trafficking and the need for non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and other not-for-profit organizations like Eden to fill this void and provide essential support to victims of human trafficking and sexual exploitation.
