We are a UK based NGO focused on ending acid violence and supporting survivors. Every year thousands of people across the world are subjected to deliberate attacks with acid. The root causes of attacks are often extremely complex, however a common factor in the vast majority of acid violence cases across the world is gender. Women and girls are overwhelmingly the targets of attacks and men are most commonly the perpetrators. When a person is attacked with acid the effects are immediately visible, prompting instant and excruciating pain. Injuries are usually directed at the face causing life altering disabilities including disfigurement and blindness. The premeditated act is designed to disfigure, maim and blind, but not to kill. We raise awareness, educate and advocate for action to prevent acid violence and mobilise resources to support in-country partners to assist survivors.
