HEMAYAT

The Viennese HEMAYAT association was established in 1995 as a center for medical, psychological, and psychotherapeutic care for torture and war survivors. The word „Hemayat“ comes from Arabic and means „care“ and „protection.“ The effects of war and torture last long after the directly life-threatening event is over.
