There are thousands of people who have been trafficked and tortured. These people are extremely vulnerable, especially at this time of year. We know that when we come together, we can give Survivors the strength to fly.
Trafficking and torture are among the most significant atrocities facing the world today and there are roughly 40,000 refugees and asylum seekers in the UK who are suffering with the consequences. Tormented by flashbacks and nightmares and suffering debilitating panic attacks, extreme depression, anxiety and despair. These survivors often have complex physical health problems as a result of repeated physical and sexual violence and prolonged confinement.
We are dedicated to ensuring that its clients are free and healthy (both physically and mentally), are safe, are protected from re-victimisation, detention and poverty, and can lead an independent life, fully integrating and contributing to society.
The impact of trafficking and torture is significant and enduring. But we can change the path that these survivors have found themselves on. We can provide a place of safety to recover. We can help restore their dignity so they feel valued in society. We can give them the strength to soar again. It's the least any society can do to care for those who have had everything taken from them.
