Messages from UN Victims of Terrorism

"Today, there are thousands of victims of terrorism and their families scattered in all regions of the world, struggling in their solitude with the scars of trauma and injury. Their human rights and dignity have been violated with indiscriminate violence.

Only the acknowledgment of their suffering can start their healing; only information-sharing can overcome their isolation; only specialized rehabilitation and redress can help them rebuild their lives.

Assisting victims of terrorism is not an act of charity: it ought to be a global engagement, anchored in States’ obligations and strongly supported by the United Nations."

Laura Dolci, victim of the Canal Hotel bombing in Iraq  (2003)
