Acid Attack Victims

Acid throwing, also called an acid attack, is a form of violent assault defined as the act of throwing acid or a similarly corrosive substance onto the body of another “with the intention to disfigure, maim, torture, or kill.” Acid Attack Victims

The victims of acid violence are overwhelmingly women and children. Perpetrators of these attacks throw acid at their victims, usually at their faces, burning them, and damaging skin tissue, often exposing and sometimes dissolving the bones. The long term consequences of these attacks may include blindness, as well as permanent scarring of the face and body, along with far-reaching social, psychological, and economic difficulties.

Acid attacks are a worldwide phenomenon that are not restricted to a particular race, religion or geographical location. Show your support to the acid attack victims, we at End Acid Attacks understand that for a lot of victims it is a difficult subject to talk about socially but with your support and donations we can help give a voice to all those who feel they aren’t able to speak out or seek the much needed help and treatment they deserve.
