Kolbassia Haoussou - Survivors Speak OUT co-founder and Coordinator

Kolbassia Haoussou has worked at Freedom from Torture since 2009. In 2007 he co-founded the Survivors Speak OUT network, a national network of torture survivors and former clients of Freedom from Torture who draw on their lived experience of torture and seeking protection through asylum, to influence decision-makers and raise public awareness of the challenges facing survivors trying to rebuild their lives in the UK.

Members of the network addressed the UN General Assembly in New York in 2013. Kolbassia is an accomplished speaker and in 2014 delivered a keynote speech alongside William Hague and Angelina Jolie-Pitt at the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict.
