Our battle is far from being declared hard won, but we feel privileged and encouraged for the immense support we have received from all stakeholders of society. Poets have lent us their songs, lawyers their time, doctors their expertise, friends their goodwill, and the many well wishers, their generous financial support. You can chose how you wish to enable us and our acid attack fighters. Whatever you chose to give, will be accepted with much gratitude.  A loving hug, a day of your time, a work of art, medical support, or financial help. We hope you will consider becoming a comrade, a supporter and a co-traveler on our journey.  Please visit http://chhanv.org

On-line Crowd funding

Stop Acid Attacks is the only Indian group that accepts no corporate or government donations so we can maintain a much needed independent voice, but it means we rely totally on individual supporters like you to fund our work. That's why your donation is so critical. Thank you for your support. It means the world.

  • LET'S CHANGE 300 LIVES WHO FACED ACID ATTACKS :

In India, at least 5 women are attacked with Acid every week. Indian government does not have any data relating to various aspects of Acid Attacks, as according to NCRB in 2013 in Kerala no of cases reported are 4 but we have got 9 fir copies from that state through RTI .

Ritu, a Fighter (survivor) of Acid Attack is trying to run the biggest research project with the team Stop Acid Attacks relating to Acid Violence in India. Ritu wants to ensure that every Acid Attack survivor receives due compensation, medical assistance and legal help to fight their battle. Join Us in our #ReachOut300 Project : bit.ly/SAAReachout

  • SHEROES HANGOUT (by Chhanv Foundation to empower Acid Attack Survivors)
This entrepreneurial project is planned and implemented by the CHHANV FOUNDATION in favour of the STOP ACID ATTACKS Campaign against acid violence in India. Our major concerns are to empower acid attack survivors in such a way that they cope up with the society head-to-head learning social behavior through interaction with people who pay concern for acid burn cases and at the same time the project promotes awareness of proximity of acid attack cases in India.

The seven women employed in the cafe share similar nightmarish histories but all say they want to inspire others who live through similar situations. 
    At the cafe, women empowerment does not originate from public funding and charity, but it has evolved into providing an honorable way of living to the victims through readers' cafe, activism workshops, a community radio hub. Join us in our new steps towards setting up more ventures like SHEROES. Click here : bit.ly/saasheroes

    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.
