Every year hundreds of men, women and children are subjected to acid violence across the World. Sadly in over 80% of cases, women are often the victims and children are often severely burnt as collateral damage.As you can imagine, this attack is a life changing event for the survivors and it takes years of surgery, social and psychological rehabilitation before they are able to stand up on their own two feet.
Now, these survivors are inspirational human beings, they are ever so resilient and strong! You can view some of the survivors story on the Islamic Help Youtube page - http://www.youtube.com/user/IslamicHelp, search for Smiles Better.Islamic Help, a UK based NGO has been working with survivors of acid attacks for many years. The charity under the banner of the Smiles Better Campaign works in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Nepal, Pakistan, and Uganda to provide life changing corrective surgery and rehabilitative support to the survivors.
