Ueberleben – Foundation for Torture Survivors
Victims of war and torture are often deeply traumatized. They have survived. But their lives are almost nothing like they were before.

We cannot heal survivors of torture. But we can help them as they return to a dignified life.
The Ueberleben – Foundation for Torture Survivors supports men and women, children, young persons and families, who have often been subjected to unimaginable horrors. In order to learn how to cope with these traumatic experiences these individuals require medical and psychosocial care. Both physical health and psychological stability are important in helping these persons to integrate into society and find employment opportunities in the places where they now live in exile. The Foundation works towards achieving these aims.

The Ueberleben – Foundation for Torture Survivors was established in 1997 with the support of the former Federal President of Germany, Richard von Weizsäcker. In 1999 the non-profit Foundation started working to help torture survivors.
