From Brussels, Belgium, OMCT Europe helps the voices of our SOS-Torture Network be heard by the institutions of the European Union. Since 2011, the OMCT office in Tunis, Tunisia, coordinates the activities of the organisation in the Middle East and North Africa region, while providing direct support to victims via its two centres in Kef and Sfax.
