CRAT Clients

CRAT clients are victims of psychological and physical trauma, torture and other human rights abuses especially children/adolescent who are victims of sexual violence and exclusion, prisoners, ex prisoners, refugees, asylum seekers, survivors of war and organized violence and members of their family.

In Yaoundé, CRAT targets refugee victims of torture and gross human rights violation referred largely from United Nations High Commission for Refugees, Cameroon Red Cross, Jamot Hospital and leaders in the refugee communities. Referrals are also made from a range of local church organisations, Non Governmental and international organisations as well as Government Ministries. However, more than 50% of the clients are self referred. Our particular focus is on women who have suffered from horrifying events such as rape, violence, and other forms of human rights violation; Orphans and vulnerable children who lost their parents due to war and other forms of organized violence.

In Bamenda, the Clinic targets prisoners awaiting trial as well as convicted prisoners and children in two prisons the Bamenda Central Prison and the Mbengwi Principal Prison, their family members as well as traumatised ex-prisoners or former detainees who were tortured in detention settings in order to get confessions. The Bamenda Clinic also targets rural traumatised individuals and families (men, youths, children, and women) from communities that have suffered from political violence, civil violence and/or serious human rights violation.
