Freedom from Torture is a human rights organisation that exists to enable survivors of torture and organised violence to engage in a healing process to assert their own human dignity and worth. Their concern for the health and well-being of torture survivors and their families is directed towards providing medical consultation, forensic documentation of torture, and psychological & physical therapies. It is also their mission to raise public awareness about torture and its consequences.
