CVT Clients, Too

In an organization that extends rehabilitative care to survivors of torture, CVT staff and clients are sadly all too familiar with issues of sexual violence.

Rape is often used as a weapon of war, a method of humiliating and wounding individuals and controlling communities. Afterward, many survivors avoid reporting what they’ve experienced.

The effects of rape, SGBV (sexual and gender-based violence), sexual assault and torture are deep and long-lasting, but at CVT, survivors embarked on a transformative healing journey that allowed them to begin rebuilding their lives.

Being able to tell their stories helps so many of our clients not only heal their wounds but begin to feel a sense of promise for their futures and the futures of their families.

There is hope for CVT clients who would say #MeToo.

Stand with us. Take Action. Support survivors and reject torture.
