acid attack survivors

There are 250 to 300 acid attacks reported in India every year, despite laws restricting the sale of acid or other deadly chemicals, according to Stop Acid Attacks, a non-profit group.

India has the highest number of acid attacks in the world and the victims are usually women between the ages of 14 and 35 years.

Victims of acid attacks in India have taken to the catwalk in an effort to show that scarred women don’t have to hide their faces.
