'Chhanv - an adobe for acid attack fighters' was inaugurated on May 19, 2013 to provide a shelter home to acid attack survivors undergoing treatment in New Delhi. Located in Laxminagar, Delhi, it is first of its kind rehabilitation centre in the country.

Chhanv is a ray of hope for all the acid attack fighters who have been struggling with their fate all alone, as the centre not only provides shelter to them during their medical treatment, but also helps them take charge of their lives after such a ghastly incident. The centre is managed and run by acid attack fighters who have recovered with their true grit and thus, is a source of inspiration and motivation for many others, who are often deserted by the hypocritical society; in some cases even by their own families.

Please write to us at contact@stopacidattacks.org in case your are an acid attack victim and planning to come to Delhi for your treatment.

    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.
