LGCF conducted a baseline survey in the Kabusa community of Abuja, in preparation for an EU-funded project.

In preparation for the implementation of the rehabilitation and psychosocial support program for torture survivors, funded by the European Union (EU), through the International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims (IRCT) and United Against Torture, scheduled to begin on March 1st, we conducted a baseline survey to assess the impact of torture in the Kabusa community of Abuja, Nigeria.

Participants were asked to fill out questionnaires to understand their pain points, enabling us to tailor our interventions accordingly.

Since 2022, Legend Golden Care Foundation (LGCF) has been showcasing its unwavering dedication to rehabilitation, providing vital support to around 100 survivors of torture and inhumane treatment, particularly within the Custodial centres of the Nigerian Correctional Service.

LGCF’s intervention left a profound impact on these survivors, guiding them on their path to healing and recovery. As a testament to LGCF’s commitment, two of these rehabilitated survivors were employed as full-time staff and provided with accommodation, underlining our holistic approach.

The achievements of 2022 ignited LGCF’s determination to expand its effort, exemplified by the establishment of our walk-in rehabilitation and psycho-social support therapy centre at our office.

This funding will enable us to achieve our goal and surpass the number of torture survivors receiving comprehensive rehabilitation support.

The primary impact of the IRCT project is the comprehensive rehabilitation of torture survivors, specifically women, girls, and children, ensuring their holistic recovery and reintegration into society. LGCF will carry out rehabilitation and Psycho-social Therapy Services: such as counselling, medical treatment, vocational training, and legal assistance, directly to the survivors and their families.
