Rebuilding lives torn apart by torture

“Victims never want to talk about their problem. They want to stay silent. Through our project, we empower them, so they have an opportunity to regain their courage and talk,” said Sotheara Chhim, the executive director of the Transcultural Psychosocial Organization, an NGO that provides rehabilitation and support to victims of torture in Cambodia.
 
Chhim is one of 13 grantees who will be in Geneva this week to attend the meeting of UN Fund for Victims of Torture. The meeting provides a chance for experts and board members to exchange ideas and best practices.
