  • Brief Directions: Acid violence is a worldwide phenomenon, and the countries with the highest rates of attacks are Bangladesh, Pakistan, Cambodia, Nepal and Uganda. In Bangladesh a country of 156 million people, 80 percent of the victims are women, many of them below the age of 18. It is always their faces that are targeted leading to disfigurement and blindness. In the last 10 years, there were 3000 victims of acid attacks. Teasing girls, land disputes, dowry, personal jealousy, family and business feuds, rejection of marriage proposal or sexual advances can spur an acid attack. No funding is available for cosmetic surgery, and most victims are from the rural areas, so they can hardly afford expensive procedures. There is little scope for rehabilitation, counseling and long-term care. My project is a quest to understand what lies behind the acid-burnt faces; what is left of lives that fall apart like a house of playing cards; stories of survival and healing.
