About Us

The UN Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture depends entirely on donations from States, private entities and individuals. Like all UN trust funds, it does not receive contributions from the UN Regular Budget and is therefore grateful for all voluntary earmarked contributions. In line with UN Rules and Regulations, the Fund channels contributions to grants, limiting overhead costs to 13 per cent.


Donors and potential donors are encouraged to increase their support to the Fund so that it can expand its crucial assistance to victims of torture.

To contribute, you can donate directly or contact the Secretariat of the Fund.
