ASSF Rehabilitation Center for Acid attacked Survivors
The goal of the project is to support acid survivors who have been attacked with acid to provide shelterhome until their complete treatment in Mumbai.
In 5 years, we saw how acid survivors come to Mumbai for treatment from small towns, When the doctor calls again, Coming from the their town to Mumbai is too much for them and brings a lot of financial challenges
Along with that, they are burnt too badly and wounds need to be taken care of nicely for better healing but ward boys and nurses don’t take care of them on a priority basis which leads to the infections of many body parts. Periodical follow-ups with doctors for bandaging are required after operation till the wounds heal. Hence they need to stay close by in a clean environment.
Acid attack is not a normal crime, because of this victims has to face many mental and physical abnormity which could be checked by modern yoga and personal counseling. After all, when they recover in most of the cases they are unskilled and resulting in unemployment. A workshop to upskill them will bring independence to their life.
When people see acid survivors they feel uncomfortable and hence they do not want to rent their house to them.
After considering all the above points we have decided to open a rehab centre which will work as a tool for victims rehabilitation.
We have planned to the construction of 5000 square feet -3 storey rehab centre with parking area, garden reception, guestroom, banquet hall, yoga centre, Counselling room, workshop, kitchen and attached bathroom rooms for survivors in Malad (West) of Mumbai.
The total estimated expenditure including land, construction and maintenance is expected to be Rs 1.5 crore.
“We want to be independent but without your support, it is not possible, We can’t change the past but your small contribution can change the future of survivors”
Our disfigured face has caused people neither to give us jobs nor homes to live in. With this shelter home, survivors can live comfortably and recuperate faster.
We are looking forward to your support and assistance to fulfil the dream of this rehab centre.
