Helping detainees in need of medical assistance

Ex-Detainee Involvement

Medical Justice is assisted by a network of people who have been detained. The group advises the staff and trustees and some ex detainees are recruited as trustees.  

Members speak at public meetings, speak to the media and assist in training volunteer doctors. 

Training in public and media speaking is provided.


Two ex-detainees are also trustees.

Public speech by former detainee

"Claiming asylum is like crossing a long bridge as narrow as a thread and beneath it is fire. There is no way I could have made it without Medical Justice ."
