Story

We're a community-led youth organisation based in south London and an 18-year-old boy who we work has been the victim of a horrendous acid attack by a stranger (along with his friend) that has left him blinded.

He is a refugee living in the UK alone and without any family to care for him. He's such a wonderful, upbeat and kind person, we want to give back to him. His injuries are life-changing and most likely permanent. We want to try and raise some money because we think that there will be a lot of things that he will need to be able to adapt to his current situation, as there will be costs that come from his disability. All of the funds we raise will go directly to the young person who has been attacked.

The attack has been reported in the media. The attacker was a stranger to the victim and has not yet been identified. The attack occurred at 8.15am on 7 December 2020 at a busy crossing in Thornton Heath, near Croydon. If you have any information or were witness to the attack, please contact the Met police.

    We're absolutely blown away by the level of support in only the first 48 hours of crowdfunding. We decided to extend the fundraising campaign for those who still want to donate. All that we raise will go straight to the young man t help him deal with the consequences of his injury, without the worry of money. We're so thankful for the amazing kindness of everyone who has donated. Thank you, thank you, thank you! <3
