Survivors of Torture, International was founded in 1997 to build a healing community for survivors of politically motivated torture living in San Diego County. SURVIVORS has served more than 1,500 torture survivors from over 80 different countries.
Can you make a difference today?
Your support is necessary for ensuring that we can continue to serve all the torture survivors who need our care. In fiscal year 2013, we served over 260, and we're on track to serve just as many in fiscal year 2014. Please make a donation using the donate button (at right) to make an immediate and much-needed contribution to our program. Also see this flyer for additional ways to support SURVIVORS.
