Advocacy and campaigning

Victims of torture compensation campaign

Thousands of torture victims have disappeared in Afghanistan over the last three decades. These innocent victims are usually tortured by corrupt governments, mafia groups and terrorist organisation in a country with poor human rights records and weak legal systems, which makes it almost impossible for them to come forward and file cases against those responsible for these inhumane treatment of innocent civilians. These innocent individuals released after years of detention and torture suffer from severe physical and mental disorders. Their families are broken down and their children traumatized.

Afghana Foundation feels very strongly about the treatment of such innocent individuals and will be trying to bring about as much comfort into their lives as possible. We will be campaigning for justice, compensation and aid for such innocent victims of torture and imprisonment.

Control Arms Campaign

Thousands of people are killed, injured, raped, and forced to flee from their homes as a result of the unregulated global arms trade. The Control Arms campaign, run by Amnesty International, Oxfam and IANSA is calling for a global, legally binding agreement – an Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), to ease the suffering caused by irresponsible transfers of conventional weapons and munitions. Afghana Foundation supports and works hard to campaign for the Control Arms Campaign.
