Medici Contro la Tortura

“For me, the real rehabilitation from torture has been their warmth, respect, confidence, and concern”

Ali, Iran

Giving people back their lives and their hope is the best job we can imagine, and doing this takes courage, determination, and deep commitment. But that’s not enough: we need financial resources to treat the physical and mental wounds of those who come to us for help.

Doctors

Medici Contro la Tortura (Doctors Against Torture) is a volunteer association that offers care and support to the victims of torture and other forms of cruel, inhuman, degrading treatment, no matter what their country of origin.
