Acid attack involves the intentional throwing of any corrosive onto the face and body of a person to disfigure them. 80 per cent of its victims are women making the crime a gender-based violence. Founded in 1999 (Reg#1501) in response to the rising trend of acid violence in Bangladesh, Acid Survivors Foundation’s mission is to eradicate acid and burn violence and empower survivors, especially women and children through an integrated approach using a replicable holistic bio-psycho-social model; through the engagement of national and international stakeholders.
