Katie Pieper

A man threw acid on Katie when the discussion about acid attack was one of the most important issues in the world. Katie was a famous model and a Television presenter at that time. That man threw Sulphuric Acid on Katie in London due to which, her body was so severely burnt that she lost her vision and also her hands, and neck was burnt.

Situation started deteriorating which made it difficult for her to survive. She went in coma for 10 days. Initially she was admitted in the hospital of Westminster & Chelsie.

Doctors masked her face for continuous 18 months and for 23 hours a day. In meanwhile she was fed by a tube. Katie was raped before, by her ex-boyfriend who later attacked her by acid.

Inspite of all these mishappenings, Katie never gave up. Today she is running an organization, which helps women who are physically abused.

Also, she has written a book in October 2009. A TV Show narrating this incident of her life was telecasted, which was viewed by approximately 3.5 billion viewers of 15 countries.

Katie is an inspiration for all the women of this world who have gone through this situation and faced mishappenings including rape, acid attack and many more.

Katie not only surpassed her depression but also got involved in the mainstream of society.


कैटी पाइपर

जब पांच साल पहले साल 2008 में कैटी पाइपर पर एक व्यक्ति ने तेज़ाब फ़ेंक दिया था. उस समय एसिड अटैक की यह घटना पूरी दुनिया में चर्चा का विषय बनी थी.
उस समय कैटी लन्दन की एक फेमस मॉडल और टीवी प्रजेंटटेटर थी.

कैटी पर एक व्यक्ति ने लन्दन में सल्फ्यूरिक एसिड फ़ेंक दिया था. जिससे उनका शरीर बुरी तरह झुलस गया था.

तेज़ाब की वजह से कैटी की आँखे बुरी तरह जल गयी थी. जिसकी वजह से उनकी एक आँख की रोशनी भी चली गयी. इसके अलावा मुहं, गला, हाथ भी बुरी तरह जल गए थे.

कैटी की स्थिति इतनी खराब हो गयी थी कि उनका बचना मुश्किल हो गया था. वो दस दिनों तक कोमा में भी रही. पहले सात हफ़्तों तक वो चेल्सी और वेस्टमिन्सटर के अस्पताल में रही.

डॉक्टरों ने कैटी के मुहं पर मास्क लगाया था, जो 18 महीनों तक करीब 23 घंटे कैटी के मुहं पर लगा रहता था. इस दौरान ट्यूब के जरिये एक साल तक उन्हें खाना खिलाया जाता था.

इलाज़ के दौरान कैटी पाइपर के छोटे-बड़े करीब 200 ऑपरेशन हुए.

इस घटना से पहले कैटी का रेप भी हुआ था, जो उनके पूर्व प्रेमी ने किया था. इसके बाद उन पर तेज़ाब फिंकवा दिया गया.

इन सब से गुजरने के बावजूद कैटी ने हिम्मत नहीं हारी. आज कैटी एक चैरिटी चला रही है. जो ऐसे ही घटनाओं में शारीरिक रूप से घायल हुए लोगों के इलाज़ में उनकी मदद करता है.

इन सबके अलावा कैटी एक किताब भी लिख चुकी हैं. अक्टूबर 2009 में उन पर एसिड अटैक के 19 माह के बाद चैनल 4 ने उनके पर एक टीवी प्रोग्राम चलाया था. जिसे करीब 15 देशों के 3.5 मिलियन लोगों ने देखा था.

कैटी आज दुनिया भर की महिलाओं के लिए प्रेरणास्त्रोत हैं, जो रेप, एसिड अटैक, डिप्रेशन के दौर से न सिर्फ बाहर आई बल्कि समाज की मुख्यधारा में भी शामिल हुयी.


    About Us

    SAA is a campaign against acid violence. We work as a bridge between survivors and the society, as most of the victims of this brutal crime, which is much more grave in its impact than a rape, have isolated themselves after losing their face. Due to ignorance of the government and civil society, most survivors find no hope and stay like an outcast, in solitude. SAA aims to research and track acid attack cases and compile a data to get the actual situation of survivors.

    Our Mission

    We work with partners and stakeholders towards elimination of acid and other forms of burn violence and protection of survivors' rights. The process of justice to an acid attack victim remains incomplete until she gets immediate medical, legal and economic help, along with the critical social acceptance. Our vision is to free India from this crime, which reflects the flaws of our patriarchal society and abusive attitudes. We want survivors to have access to fast justice and fight back the irreparable impact of this crime.

    Support Us

    Any amount you can donate to us, no matter how small, will be very gratefully received and put to good use helping acid and burns violence survivors. Your help could help pay for dressings and medical supplies for recuperating patients. A small help could help survivors with vital physical rehabilitation after an attack, including physical therapy and nursing.
