Friday 26 June is the International Day in Support of the Victims of Torture.
Unfortunately, physical, psychological, and sexual torture is extremely widespread. While it is carried out by quite a number of governments, some of which even have schools for torturers, it also is carried out by paramilitary and other groups. Also, unfortunately, torture is nothing new. It has been carried out through the millennia.
Torture of any sort is NEVER acceptable under any circumstances.
It is extremely important that ALL victims of torture get medical and psychological examination and assistance as soon as possible. Such assistance is very important, even if it is many years since the torture occurred.
The links below give organizations that can assist. If you cannot find other assistance, please contact us.
