Indian Acid Survivors.
Victims of acid attacks in India are not only permanently disfigured, but they are also forced to deal with the emotional burden of being social outcasts in their communities, often living a life of solitude and neglect. The girls and women who suffer these attacks are seldom granted protection and justice under the law; very few receive compensation and most are unable to pay for the multiple surgeries needed to mend their disfigured faces.
There are no recent statistics about how many attacks happen every year in India, this is also because the government doesn't recognize the acid attack as a separate offense. Many different international NGO'S estimated that there are between 800- 1.000 cases every year.
This work was a campaign for the local Indian NGO Stop Acid Attacks. You can visit them or send a donation on their website: https://www.facebook.com/StopAcidAttacks/
