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.

It is sometimes important to take time to thank the people who are there for others…
Acid Survivors Foundation would therefore like to thank its donors for all their support and dedication, their continuous help and solidarity.
We would also like to quote an example of donations by daughters on behalf of their mother, we found it moving.
“Salaams. I hope that all is going well with your efforts. For your information, I just contributed $200 online in memory of my mother (Janice Payson) and a friend’s mother (Christiana Nnang).
Thanks for doing this important work.
On behalf of all acid survivors, thank you.
