Corrs partner Michael Chaaya and special counsel Michael do Rozario attended a special event for Hagar last night hosted by the Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation.

Hagar works with women and children who have survived severe human rights abuse in Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar and Afghanistan. It does whatever it takes for as long as it takes to restore a broken life. 

The event aimed to raise $40,000 to support Hagar’s girls recovery shelter in Cambodia: the first place of safety where Hagar clients arrive traumatised, tired and scared and where their healing begins.

Corrs has formed a partnership with Hagar, an international non-government organisation that specialises in restoring the lives of women and children who have survived modern slavery and severe human rights abuse. The firm has committed to provide Hagar with pro bono legal services as well as non-legal support including public relations assistance, administrative assistance and fundraising. Corrs also works with Hagar to raise their profile in Australia.
