The Humanitarian Affairs Unit of the non-governmental organisation Future Worlds Center (leg. reg. as Cyprus Neuroscience and Technology Institute) is pleased to announce that it has been selected for the fourth time by the United Nations Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture (UNVFVT) to support the work of the Unit for the Rehabilitation of Victims of Torture (URVT) for the year 2013.

The services offered include social support related to housing, entry into the labour market, access to education, social benefits, and healthcare, while the legal assistance is offered in relation to people's asylum application procedures. Psychological support is offered in collaboration with psychologists specialising on the rehabilitation of torture victims.
