About us

IRC was established as a charitable foundation in 1994.

The main goal of IRC is to provide free medical care and rehabilitation to victims of torture and ill-treatment as well as to those who have suffered from gross violations of fundamental human rights or to family members of such persons.

Our organization also aims to promote the prevention of torture, ill-treatment and other human rights violations.
For more than twenty years of activity we accomplished many projects concerning medical, psychological and social assistance to various categories of patients: a former Soviet political prisoners and victims of political repression; former juvenile prisoners of Nazi concentration camps; victims of torture in law enforcement; persons affected by the Chernobyl disaster; refugees and asylum seekers; lonely elderly among the poorest and most vulnerable segments of the society.

All these people in one way or another have experienced violence, they suffered from severe physical and psychological injuries.

Years of experience working with our patients indicates that those people need a specific approach, special attention, great patience and much time for their rehabilitation.

IRC has license issued by Ministry of Health of Ukraine for medical practice and qualification certificate for medical laboratory issued by Ukrmetrteststandart.

Yearly IRC has to more than 2,500 visits.
