“Athens Voice” article on Victims of Torture

victims_of_torture_metadrasi_b

Read the stories of 10-year-old Ahmed from Syria and 29-year-old Marion from the Democratic Republic of Congo, victims of torture in their homelands, who arrived in Greece seeking protection.

Among the refugees arriving in Greece, a high percentage are victims of torture, but they often constitute the “invisible” faces of the vulnerable refugee population.

Since March 2018, with the support of European Commission’s Civil Protection & Humanitarian Aid Operations Department (ECHO), more than 150 people benefited from METAdrasi’s activity “Investigation and Certification of Victims of Torture” in Athens, while nearly 1,000 people were certified since the beginning of the activity, in September 2011.
