Every day, women, men and children are tortured or ill-treated with the intention of destroying their sense of dignity and human worth. By supporting them, the international community will prove its determination and commitment to fight torture and impunity, Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has said. Photo: UNMISS /Jacob Ruai.
