How My Abhinandan NGO Supports Acid Attack Survivors with Medical, Legal, and Psychological Services

Acid Attack Survivors

Acid attacks are one of the most horrific forms of violence that affect thousands of people, especially women and girls, around the world every year. An acid attack is a deliberate act of throwing acid or another corrosive substance on a person’s face or body, with the intention of causing severe physical and psychological harm. The consequences of acid attacks are devastating and long-lasting, as they result in permanent disfigurement, loss of vision, chronic pain, infections, social stigma, and trauma.

 

Acid attack survivors face many challenges in their recovery and reintegration into society. They often need multiple surgeries, skin grafts, and specialized treatments that are costly and not easily accessible. They also face legal hurdles in seeking justice and compensation from their perpetrators, who are often known to them and may threaten or harass them. Moreover, they struggle with the psychological impact of the attack, such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and post-traumatic stress disorder. They may also face discrimination, isolation, and rejection from their families, communities, and workplaces.

 

In this context, My Abhinandan NGO is a non-governmental organization that works for the empowerment of women and children, especially those who are victims of violence and abuse. We provide acid attack survivors with healthcare, education, skill development, and livelihood opportunities. We also organize awareness campaigns and events to sensitize the public and the media about the issue of acid attacks. Our vision is to create a society where every woman and child is respected, valued, and empowered.

 

Our Medical Services for Acid Attack Survivors

We understand that acid attack survivors need immediate and long-term medical care to heal their physical wounds and prevent further complications. We have a team of doctors, nurses, and paramedics who provide emergency first aid, hospitalization, surgery, skin grafting, physiotherapy, and prosthetic devices to the survivors. We also cover the medical expenses of the survivors and help them access government schemes and insurance policies. We have partnered with several hospitals and clinics across the country to ensure that the survivors get the best possible treatment and care.

 

Our Legal Services for Acid Attack Survivors

We believe that acid attack survivors deserve justice and compensation for the crime committed against them. We have a team of lawyers, paralegals, and social workers who provide legal aid, counseling, and representation to the survivors. We help them file police complaints, obtain medical reports, collect evidence, and pursue court cases. We also assist them in obtaining interim and final compensation from the government and the perpetrators. We have also been advocating for policy and legal reforms to prevent and punish acid attacks and to protect the rights and interests of the survivors.

 

Our Psychological Services for Acid Attack Survivors

We recognize that acid attack survivors suffer from immense psychological trauma and emotional distress due to the attack. We have a team of psychologists, counselors, and therapists who provide psychotherapy, counseling, and support groups to the survivors. We help them cope with the shock, grief, anger, fear, and guilt that they may experience after the attack. We also help them rebuild their self-esteem, confidence, and hope for the future. We encourage them to express their feelings, share their stories, and connect with other survivors who can empathize and support them.
