This year, more than 80 organisations around the world commemorated the day with activities ranging from conferences to theatre performances. Hundreds of people joined the online observation of the day on Facebook and many more shared their messages in support of torture victims on Twitter.
The 26 June is over but the work against torture and in support of torture survivors must be carried out 365 days a year.
There are many ways you can get involved and support this work:
Donate to the IRCT and help rehabilitation centres around the world provide healing services to victims, their families and communities.
