HUMAN RIGHTS: British Foundation Cares for Torture Victims
The Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture, a London-based NGO, inaugurated a new building designed with the needs of torture victims and their caregivers in mind, the foundation’s spokesman Andrew Hogg tells Radio Farda’s London correspondent Shahran Tabari. Founded in 1985, the foundation provides care and rehabilitation to survivors of torture and other forms of organized violence. Most of the foundation’s clients are from Iran, Turkey and African countries, he adds. Nasrin Parvaz, an Iranian refugee, who has spent eight years in the Islamic Republic jails is one of the foundation’s clients. She has recently published a book of her prison memoirs. She tells Radio Farda that she was arrested because of her association with a communist group.
