In 2013, victims supported by the OMCT benefited from a multidisciplinary assistance, including medical, legal and social, according to their needs.
- In the East of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), the OMCT supported the construction of a “Women’s House” in Goma and funded medical costs, therapy and school fees for girls who had suffered sexual violence.
- The OMCT established two counselling centres for victims of torture in the cities of Sidi Bouzid and Kef, in Tunisia, in partnership with the Tunisian Organisation Against Torture.
- The OMCT regularly organised training seminars relating to the submission of individual complaints to the United Nations Treaty Bodies.
- Finally, a particular emphasis was placed on the implementation of recommendations adopted by the Committee against Torture during six missions to Mexico, Indonesia, the Philippines, Colombia, Chile and Togo.
