No one leaves their home, families and
friends without being in great need.

Those people who managed to find their way to Germany from Syria, Chechnya, Turkey, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq and more than 30 additional countries, fled from torture, militias, bombs, sexual abuse, persecution and hatred.

Each year, approximately 400 survivors of torture and war brutality find their way to our treatment center.

Torture leaves deep physical and psychological marks on a person

Those women, children and men who come to us, experienced unbearable pain. They are severely traumatized and suffer greatly from their physical and psychological injuries.

Our treatment center is offering social, medical and psychotherapeutic support. Our patients learn that their symptoms are normal and human reactions to an abnormal and inhuman situation. We support them in learning to live with the after-effects of torture which often is an intensive and lengthy process.

Survivors of torture need a stable environment

Due to deracination, difficult living conditions in exile and often years of an uncertain residential situation, the survivors find it hard to cope with their experiences. For the treatment to take place in a stable environment and for a successful integration into the new exile community, we offer counseling in the asylum process, German and computer courses as well as vocational courses. In addition we support them in their daily routine.

Survivors of torture need your support

Only with your help can we make these comprehensive therapeutic, counseling and educational offers. With your support we will be able to pave their way into a dignified future.
