Annual Report 2016-2017


2016-17 has been an incredibly busy year. It has also been a year of enormous achievements for the organization, and more importantly, for the work STARTTS does in ensuring that torture and the horrors of the refugee experience do not become a lifelong sentence for survivors. STARTTS assisted 9,939 clients in 2016-2017 in the context of the additional 12,000 places made available in the refugee and humanitarian program to address the refugee crisis in Syria and Iraq. Our work in 2016-17 took the number of people STARTTS has assisted since 1988 to 59,097 persons from 163 countries.
