Dr Asim Shahmalak helps acid attack victims in Pakistan

A Manchester surgeon is using his skills to help acid attack victims in his native Pakistan.

Dr Asim Shahmalak funds his own trips to Pakistan and performs eyelash and eyebrow surgery on the women.

Some of the women who have been attacked are so badly disfigured they are shunned by their families and society and left to live on the streets.
