CARE TODAY A/C ACID ATTACK SURVIVORS FUND
Reaching out to support and rehabilitate acid attacks survivors

Acid attack in India has stunned our consciences repeatedly with maimed countenances, unbeaten survivors and families driven to insolvency supporting their recovery costs. It is the worst infliction on a human being, leading to complete debilitation; loss of income and opportunity; as well as social alienation. Acid attack survivors endure immense trauma and are unable to lead a normal life – often blinded, scarred beyond recognition and robbed of their identity.

Acid attack cases are increasing every year. Formally reported cases have increased from 83 in 2011 to 349 in 2015, while it is believed that there are many which are not reported. The victims mostly have been women between the ages of 14 and 35, and attacks often occur as revenge for rejecting a marriage proposal or sexual advances; for socially unacceptable and frivolous reasons such as not bringing enough dowries; blaming a girl child, etc.

Our efforts

acid attack

Since 2013, Care Today Fund has been supporting Ms. Tuba Tabassum, an acid attack survivor from Sivan in Bihar for her medical treatment and education. She was also supported by Care Today Fund to undergo her coaching from a renowned institute to appear for the medical entrance examination in the academic year 2016-17. We acknowledge that like Tuba there are hundreds of acid attack survivors in the country hoping for sustainable solutions to their endless suffering.

In June, 2017, Care Today Fund launched the Care Today A/c Acid Attack Survivors Fund project to continue supporting acid attack survivors, especially to create a sustainable environment for them.

In August, 2018, Care Today Fund entered into a partnership with NGO ActionAid Association, an associate of UK based ActionAid, an internationally reputed NGO, in order to establish a Café in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, which will be fully run and managed by 10 acid attack survivors. The project is under progress.
