The Acid Survivors Foundation
The founding of the Bangladesh charity dedicated to treating the victims of acid attacks.
In 1999 a charity was founded in Bangladesh that was dedicated to treating and rehabilitating the survivors of acid violence. The majority of the attacks were against young women, the acid was usually thrown at their faces causing life-altering disfigurement and long-term psychological issues.
