Dear CST supporters,
Every day, women, men, and children are tortured or ill-treated with the intention of destroying their sense of dignity and human worth. In too many countries, people’s legitimate demands for freedom and human rights are met with brutal repression.
Yesterday was International Day in Support of Victims of Torture and we express our solidarity with, and support for, the hundreds of thousands of victims of torture and their family members throughout the world who endure such suffering.
I want to extend a sincere thank you for your support and continuing interest in Center for Survivors of Torture. It is my great pleasure to share with you that we have passed the 2,000 mark in the provision of quality mental health services for refugees and asylum seekers to restore their spirit and rebuild their lives.
Please do not forget to make your pledge to help CST clients through The Meadows Foundation’s matching grant by October 2013.
Warmest regards,
Celia VanDeGraaf
