The Redress Trust Limited
REDRESS is a human rights organisation that helps torture survivors obtain justice and reparation. REDRESS works with survivors to help restore their dignity and to make torturers accountable.
We aim to:
- Obtain justice and other forms of reparation for survivors of torture
- Hold accountable the governments and individuals who perpetrate torture and related international crimes, contributing to strengthening the rule of law and to eradicate the practice of torture
- Develop the means of ensuring compliance with international standards and securing remedies for victims.
Also, we continue to progress hundreds of torture cases, work with partners throughout the world to support survivors and carry out joint advocacy and built capacity. In so doing, we promote the universal values of tolerance, respect for human dignity and the rule of law.
As you know, torture thrives in a situation of silence, behind the scenes. Painfully, torture does not discriminate – it can happen in any country to anyone. Your support would help us to shine a spotlight on torture wherever and however it occurs and to pressure governments to meet the human rights obligations they have willingly and legally signed up for. Also, your support would help us to collaborate with human rights groups worldwide. But most importantly, your support would help us to reach the many survivors of this horrific crime and to help ensure they get the support and reparation they are entitled to.
Truthfully, we could not do this work without you. We, and those we help, deeply appreciate your generosity.
