Overall aim of the project is to contribute to well-being, improvement of health and psychological status, and quality of life of torture victims and their family members – refugees from Middle East and North Africa, currently settled in Serbia. The aim will be achieved through comprehensive assistance that includes psychological, medical and legal assistance to torture victims and their family members. Intensive cooperation with various stakeholders (Ombudsperson’s office, asylum centres, international and national NGOs) will contribute to prompt and adequate reaction and assistance to those who are in need.

Within the scope of this project IAN CRTV is providing medical and psychological assistance to refugees who are settled in the reception centre in Bosilegrad, with the focus on torture victims among them. IAN CRTV is also providing assistance to torture victims and family members in its Belgrade office. In collaboration with other NGOs that are providing assistance to refugees, many torture victims and victims of ill treatment and sexual abuses are referred to our centre for specialized services, such as psychotherapy, psychological and psychiatric assistance.
