Acid attack victim Preeti Rathi's last words

Posted by Stop Acid Attacks On Thursday, June 06, 2013 No comments
These are the last few notes that 23-year-old Preeti scribbled while she battled for life in a Mumbai hospital after a brutal acid attack on 2nd May, 2013.
 Preeti was in the hospital for nearly a month but despite all her pain and suffering she was worried about her family and future. She knew that her dream to become a nurse was shattered.
 After the sudden acid attack on her, Preeti feared for the security of her cousins. In a note to her aunt she said that she never wanted them to meet a similar fate.
Being a nurse she knew that her treatment wouldn't be cheap. She wanted to know who was bearing the expenses of the hospital and how long would it take for her to be discharged.
She wrote that she no longer wanted to look pretty she just wanted to go home to her family. She knew that her mother would be tensed and everyone at home would be worried.

 She had not idea who that man was? Why did he attack her? What did he want from her and why did he ruin her life? All she wanted was for him to be caught.

    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.
