The Center for Victims of Torture (CVT) works toward a future in which torture ceases to exist and its victims have hope for a new life.

We are an international nonprofit dedicated to healing survivors of torture. We offer rehabilitation services to those

who have been tortured, train partners around the world who can prevent and treat torture, and advocate for human rights and an end to torture.

We are headquartered in Minnesota, and we have US offices in Atlanta and DC, as well as offices in Africa and the Middle East.

CVT is launching operations in Bidi Bidi Settlement starting in September 2018. The program will serve South Sudanese refugees fleeing civil war and living in Bidi Bidi, mainly in Zone 5 of the settlement.

The program has two primary goals: provide direct services to survivors and to build the capacity of providers in the community to deliver mental health services.
