SACH is a non-profit, non-governmental organization based in Islamabad/Rawalpindi working for the rehabilitation of the victims of traumatic human rights abuses through a multidisciplinary approach that includes inter alia offering shelter, medical treatment, and psychological support to survivors of state, domestic and other kinds of abuses - especially to women and children.

Since it was created in 1993, SACH's mission has been to work as a research and documentation center on the subject of torture, and the interdisciplinary and holistic rehabilitation and reintegration of survivors of all forms of torture. SACH has been able to create a strong network around the country and has established a solid reputation with private donors and the Government of Pakistan.
