THE CANADIAN CENTRE FOR  THE VICTIMS OF TORTURE

CCVT is a non-profit, registered charitable organization which aids survivors to overcome the lasting effects of torture and war.

We have a lot to offer

INTERNATIONAL

PROJECTS

As part of the mandate to respond to the needs of survivors abroad, as well as in Canada, the CCVT has supported the efforts of three clinics in Central America which offer treatment to children traumatized by the continuing violence in the region. The Centre has provided partnership with the Imbali Rehabilitation Centre in South Africa and the Ethiopian Centre for Survivors of Torture. The projects are supported by the United Nations Voluntary Fund for Torture Victims.

 

The CCVT is associated with a coalition of centres that support victims of violent oppression and torture, in exile or in their own countries. It is also involved in networking, consultations and the exchange of ideas and information with international organizations such as the United Nations (UNHCR, UN Committee Against Torture, joint NGO and States conferences in Geneva), Amnesty International, and the IRCT, particularly on policy issues and by lobbying governments to release human rights activists globally. CCVT also provides support and training to centres in Africa, Asia and Europe, and participates in conferences and workshops throughout the world
