We are the Jiyan Foundation for Human Rights

For more than 15 Years the Jiyan Foundation for Human Rights has supported survivors of trauma, terror, and human rights violations by providing mental health, medical, legal and educational services. Every year, the Jiyan Foundation supports thousands of survivors of torture and violence. About half of our beneficiaries are women, and a third are children and adolescents.


The Jiyan Foundation for Human Rights promotes the mental well-being, physical rehabilitation, and social reintegration of survivors and their families by providing them with free-of-charge psychotherapeutic support, medical treatment, and socio-legal counseling. 

We help survivors of human rights abuses regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity or spiritual leanings. In 2005, we started our activities in the multi-ethnic city of Kirkuk, where we opened the first rehabilitation clinic for victims of torture in Iraq.
