Lawyers & Doctors for Human Rights - LDHR
to stop human rights violations and assist those who require services to
seek justice and rehabilitation.
We originally started as a group of lawyers and physicians devoting
efforts to document the atrocities taking place in crises with an emphasis
on ex-detainees and torture survivors. Through targeted trainings and
mentoring by international experts, we were able to deepen and diversify
our own expertise in medical-legal documentation of torture and SGBV.
Multiple phases of this project produced committees, attracted new
members, and we have developed a more organized way of collaborating
to obtain justice and fulfill the mission of preserving human rights for all.
LDHR is growing fast and expanding its activities, while continuing to
build and share knowledge and expertise.
