Picture This

Marked for Life


These are the folded hands of 25-year-old Nusrat Aflal, as he sits in front of a television. He is the victim of an acid attack, which left behind the brutal scars. He is a member of the Acid Survivors Foundation in Islamabad, Pakistan, a group which offers medical, psychological and legal help to acid attack victims. The perpetrators often come from the victims’ own families, making the attacks even more difficult for the victims to overcome. It is not uncommon for acid attack victims to commit suicide.

    Great blog, very educational!
    If you want to get this out to a wider viewers I would counsel you attempt a press release.
    There are lots of free press release companies out there and I’m always glad to supply any advice on writing and arrangement.


  2. Hi, I stumbled across this site by mistake i was searching Google for advice just like this when I came upon your site, I must say your site is very cool I just love the feel, its amazing!. I don’t have the time this second to fully read your site but I have bookmarked it and also signed up for your feeds. I will be back periodically. thanks for a great site.

  3. im often bumping all over the net almost all of the working day as a result I possess a tendency to peruse a great deal, which is not usually a beneficial thing as almost all of the pages I discover are made up of useless rubbish copied from similar sites a trillion times, on the other hand I’ll hand it to ya this page is in fact decent and seems to have a lot of original information, therefore many thanks for stopping the trend of solely replicating other individual’s blogs :)
