Coming Along On An ASF Monitoring Field Visit in Southern Punjab.

May 27th, 2012

Mr Stephane Mund, Deputy Head of Mission, Belgium embassy in Pakistan accompanied Mr Mohammad Khan, ASF-Pakistan ED, on a monitoring mission. This was a tangible way of understanding the field situation and observe ASF work on the ground. Mr Mund is shown below being introduced  to the Aman comittee, a group set up to enhance peace between shias and sunnis and prevent conflicts which may lead to extreme violence including acid attack, although the usage of acid from a religious group to target another is still marginal in Pakistan….We salute the initiative!

Many of you must be wondering what Acid Survivors Foundation is exactly doing when the team goes on the field; we are therefore presenting you a collection of pictures that will illustrate our activities away from the Nursing Care and Rehabilitation Unit. Kindly note that keeping in touch with the local government, the stakeholders and the community is essential to create  a social disapproval regarding acid violence and generate social support for our action.

ASF team often meets acid shops owners to sensitize them about their civic responsibilities and the need to monitor the acid distribution.
Ultimately, we would like to create some sort of watch committees that could ensure that an acid sale regulation and monitoring law would be implemented efficiently.
These expert volunteers are always there for taking up the cases that need to be proceeded in front of the court. They are also essential to guide us and link us with influential politicians or parliamentarians who would be ready to support a change in the current legal framework. Thanks to them, justice is not a dream but becomes a reality. last but not least. Meeting the communities means that the survivors are acknowledged for their efforts and that this link is the key to the establishment of groups of change agents that will voice out against acid violence, domestic violence and child abuse.
