Acid Attack survivors – video –
Can beauty prevail when innocent people are disfigured by acid attacks? Can they rise stronger than before, more empowered and determined?
Through the great efforts of the Acid Survivors Foundation (ASF) the numbers of acid attacks have gone down, however Bangladesh is a country still plagued by acid attacks. In many cases the attack comes from within
the family, mostly due to disputes over honour, dowry, property or land. Women, men and children are left with the painful physical and mental scars that stay with them for the rest of their lives.
The project was in part realized in collaboration with the ASF in Bangladesh and Amnesty International in Copenhagen. Please visit their website to find out more about their great work and possibly donate to their cause. acidsurvivors.org/
