OMEGA intend to provide support, care and treatment for persons who have been victims of organised violence and systematic health and human rights violations, as well as for their relatives and children, in the social, legal, cultural, spiritual, medical, psychological and psychotherapeutic spheres.
The Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture (VFST) was established in 1987 to meet the needs of people in Victoria who were tortured or traumatised in their countries of origin, in other countries, or while fleeing those countries. The Foundation is non-denominational, politically neutral and non-aligned.
The mission of ACTV is to increase the general quality and quantity of treatment offered to traumatised victims of institutionalised torture and to enhance the democratisation process by increased awareness of basic human rights.
The work of the centre focuses on offering practical assistance (medical, psychological, social, and informational) to persons who have previously been subjected to political repression and torture.
The aim is to run an out-patient clinic for torture and war victims in Switzerland. In the medically supervised and managed out-patient clinic, we offer interdisciplinary consultations and treatment to traumatised refugees and their relatives.
The centre offers help to refugees with residence and work permits, as well as asylum seekers who suffer from trauma due to torture and/or war. (web site available in Swedish, English, Arab, Turkish and Persia language)
