In Indian society, domestic abuse is not something unheard of. In fact, it is fairly common with as many as 22% women in India reporting physical domestic abuse according to a report. Anju, one of our survivors here was also a victim of the same and was attacked with kerosene oil by her in-laws.
Please help us in raising funds for her surgery here - http://ket.to/gethermedic and share our post to help us reach out to more people.
Please help us raise funds for Anju who was constantly beaten, threatened and abused by her alcoholic husband and his family. One day, her sister-in-law attacked her with KEROSENE OIL and she is now suffering from brutal burns.

Make Love Not Scars (MLNS) is a non-governmental organization that works on all aspects of rehabilitation for acid attack survivors in India.
On the 7th of March, MLNS set up a rehabilitation center based in Delhi, open to all acid attack survivors in the country. This is a safe haven for the survivors to feel comfortable in. Various classes will be held at the center including English lessons, learning how to use a computer, along with yoga, dance and meditation all suited to the survivors specific needs. These classes are in place as a step forward to help reintroduce the survivors back into society, personally and professionally.
It is horrific that not only do acid attacks leave survivors severely scarred, both physically and emotionally but they also leave many of the survivors’ blind. We want to be able to help all survivors, no matter what their disability. Along with the various classes mentioned, we want to have Brail classes for the blind. For this to happen we require specific equipment including desktops and a special software. This is where we need your help to raise the necessary funds to make this possible. It will give specifically the blind survivors more confidence; mediums to communicate and it will help them professionally giving them further employment opportunities to be able to stand on their own two feet again.
Any donation, no matter how small or big is a step forward to help improve the lives of these innocent victims.
