In 2013, victims supported by the OMCT benefitted from multidisciplinary assistance, including medical, legal, and social. The OMCT supported the construction of a “Women’s house” in Goma, Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and funded medical costs, therapy and school fees for girls who have suffered sexual violence.
In Tunisia, it established two counselling centres for victims of torture in the cities of Sidi Bouzid and Kef, in partnership with the Tunisian Organisation Against Torture.
A particular emphasis was placed on the implementation of recommendations adopted by the United Nations Committee against Torture during six missions to Mexico, Indonesia, the Philippines, Colombia, Chile, and Togo.
