The Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture is now known as Freedom from Torture. The charity helps all victims of Torture. Torture is still endemic in much of the World. After several thousand years of so-called civilisation we have reached the situation where there is no more respect than there ever has been. There are parts of the World where torture is on the increase. It is a vile practise, designed as much to humiliate victims as much as to extract information. Most people will confess to anything under extreme torture. Freedom from Torture counsels victims, helps them to recover & come to terms with their terrible experiences.
There is an exhibition of art by victims of torture at the loading bay gallery, 91 Brick Lane, London E1 6QL. Next week Monday the 28th of November there is an auction of this art at Village Underground, 54 Holywell Lane, London EC2A 3PQ at 6.30pm. This is the link
