WAR Against Rape (WAR) is a certified not for profit, non-sectarian, apolitical, non-government organization. It was founded in Karachi in 1989 and became a registered organization in 1992. WAR is committed to creating a rape free society. It endeavors to work on all social, legal, medical and administrative issues that could help either in the reduction of such acts of violence or support, facilitate and improve human rights and conditions for survivors.
WAR offers services to survivors of sexual violence including free legal aid, psychotherapeutic counseling, medical assistance and crises intervention, and has an aggressive advocacy component through which various activities are undertaken for awareness-raising and capacity-building purposes.
Over the past 20 years, it has emerged as one of the leading voices against sexual violence, particularly rape in Pakistan, with a view to providing comprehensive services and advocate rights-base services for survivors. WAR is dedicated to assist survivors in their fight for justice and aid development, implementation and monitoring of appropriate rights-based integrated response to sexual violence in law–enforcement, medico-legal and judicial sectors in order to minimize secondary trauma to survivors.
