Bridgerton star Adjoa Andoh presents Freedom from Torture’s BBC Radio 4 Appeal

Freedom from Torture is delighted to have been selected for a BBC Radio 4 Appeal this year.

We are thrilled that Adjoa Andoh, star of the hit Netflix drama Bridgerton and supporter of our work, will appear in our appeal to raise funds for survivors of torture across the UK. You can tune in to listen to our appeal at 07:54 am and 21:25pm on Sunday 5th March and at 15:27pm on the following Thursday 9th March.

Hear from Adjoa directly on why you should consider supporting our work:

In our appeal, Adjoa describes the story of Nasrin Parvaz, who was jailed by the Iranian regime for campaigning for better human rights. Nasrin was tortured so badly while in prison that she was temporarily paralysed and developed a brain tumour.

After fleeing to the UK severely traumatised, she received therapy from Freedom from Torture and has since been able to continue her activism, while forging a successful career as an author, artist and public speaker.

A donation of £61 today could fund a one-hour therapy session with a therapist and an interpreter to pay for the first step towards recovery.

With your support, Freedom from Torture can transform the lives of more survivors like Nasrin.

Donations can be made in the following ways from 5th March – 12th March:

  • Calling 0800 404 8144
  • Give online
  • Write a cheque to Freedom from Torture and send it to FREEPOST BBC Radio 4 Appeal (Don’t forget to mark the back of your envelope with Freedom from Torture).

If you want to make a donation after the 12th March, you can do so via this link.

Thank you so much for your incredible support.
