Supporting victims of torture and rebuilding lives

“The rise of violent extremism and unprecedented levels of forced displacement in our world demand a comprehensive response – and no aspect is more urgent than assisting the many victims of rising levels of torture that these and related trends generate,” said UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in his message to mark the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture on 26 June.

The UN Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture, managed by the UN Human Rights Office, provides assistance to more than 50,000 victims every year.
