Medicine For Peace congratulates TASSC on the Twentieth Anniversary of its founding by Sister Dianna Ortiz. The only organization founded by and for torture victims, TASSC now provides social, psychological and legal services to torture victims in the Washington, DC area. TASSC continues to be a strong voice in the world wide campaign to end torture.
Most important, since 1998 TASSC has provided a safe haven for torture victims, a place where they could feel protected under difficult circumstances as they began their recovery from the trauma of torture and displacement. TASSC was very supportive to Medicine For Peace when we began our Clinic For Torture Victims in Hyattsville, MD in 2009, now situated at the Bon Secours Hospital in Baltimore, and we owe much of our success to their help.
