Naureen Jabbar is 32 years old with 3 young children. Her life wasn’t one of struggle or hardship that many others had experienced and not one which you may expect being associated as a survivor with End Acid Attack. Her husband worked in Malaysia and earned a good wage, her children were provided for and she was happy living the family life.
The bubble of happiness would end abruptly when her husband would lose his job and be sent back to Pakistan. The change in circumstances would slowly drain the family after Naureen’s husband struggled to find employment in Pakistan and later gave up all hope. The children and Naureen endeavoured to cope and the pressure on the family intensified. When Naureen insisted that he work and earn, he ended up beating her. The continued arguments and domestic abuse would lead Naureen to heroically apply for divorce, in a time where the social stigma of divorce would create social shame and out casting for a woman.
After 3 months of divorce and finally on her feet living independently, Naureen was on the daily school run to drop off her children. Naureen’s husband came into her way, and threw acid on her. Her face was left burnt severely and her left eye was damaged permanently. She was registered with End Acid Attack Partners (EAAP) in 2014. Since then, she has undergone with 3 surgeries. In the journey to rebuilding her life, EAAP has provided the cost of Naureen’s beauty training. Recently, she completed her training and she is now living a life where she is the owner of her own happiness.
