A Global Crisis
Over a sixth of the world’s population has directly experienced armed conflict, torture, terrorism, sexual and gender-based violence, ethnic cleansing or genocide.
The effects can be devastating: more than 50% of survivors cannot lead functional lives because of incapacitating traumatic depression or PTSD. They can’t work or care for their families. Children can’t attend school. Untreated, this can extend into the next generation and beyond.
The mission of the Peter C. Alderman Foundation (PCAF) is to heal the emotional wounds of survivors of torture, terrorism and mass violence by training indigenous health workers and establishing trauma treatment systems in post-conflict countries around the globe.
With treatment, survivors can be restored to productive lives. You can help us reach and treat more of these survivors.
Our approach works; read about our results and impact.
