The word "Hemayat" originates from the Arabic and Persian language area and means "care" and "protection". HEMAYAT is a politically independent, non-profit association. Since 1995, HEMAYAT has established itself in Vienna as a centre for medical, psychological and psychotherapeutic care for survivors of torture and war. Our care is in principle free of charge, regardless of whether someone is covered by health insurance or not. HEMAYAT is open to everyone who has had threatening and painful experiences in their home country or on the run.
