International Day in Support of Victims of Torture - Bosnia and Herzegovina

visit International Day in Support of Victims of Torture - Serbia

Within the project, the newly established Centre for Rehabilitation of Torture Victims in Trebinje organized a basket tournament under the motto "Together against torture" on the occasion of 26th June International Day in Support of victims of torture. Twelve teams of boys aged up to 16 participated in the tournament. The aim of this action was to draw public attention to the necessity of fighting against torture and the need to help the victims and support them. A large number of people from Herzegovina was detained in numerous camps throughout Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina during the war in the nineties, where they were tortured. Some of them came to the tournament and provided support to young basketball players.

Commemorating June 26th, the Centre for Rehabilitation of Torture Victims established within the Health Centre Milici as a part of the project Comprehensive Rehabilitation Program for Torture Victims in Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina organised a drawing competition for children of primary and secondary schools at the topic Together against torture. The best three drawings were rewarded. A street performance with playing the acoustic guitar accompanied the competition. The event was organised in cooperation with the Youth Council Milici.

On the same occasion a stand was placed in the centre of the town where the activists distributed promotional materials to the passers-by.
