Stop Acid Attacks (SAA) is a campaign against acid violence, under the banner of Saraswati Siksha Samiti, a non-governmental organization dedicated to promote health, education and women's rights. A survivor of an acid attack requires immediate medical, financial and psychological support on human grounds. But, the judicial procedures in this country do not assure any such intervention or help to the survivor until a court announces so. It is this loophole in the procedure of justice that we work on by generating immediate medical and final support for the victims and providing them and their families the needed psychological and legal support.
We work as a bridge between survivors and the society, as many victims tend to isolate after losing their faces, hibernating into their solitude and misery due to the ignorance of the government and civil society. Since the country has never had any study to assess the situation of survivors who face the brutal aftermath of acid attacks, SAA aims at researching and tracking more acid attack cases to compile a data to assess the actual situation of victims. With a team of prominent activists, journalists, politicians, celebrities and responsible civil society members, SAA is trying to take the cruel reality of this crime to people. We are using visual, dramatics and literary means to strengthen our campaign and drive home the message with an impact.
We are not an NGO, and neither do we wish to be one, as the millions of existing NGOs have hardly had any positive impact in the areas they work upon.
