Live to Heal a Life

For a longh time it seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there were always some obstacles in the way, sometime to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.

Surgeries and Healing

There is a light in this world, a healing spirit more powerful than any darkness we may encounter. We sometimes lose sight of this force when there is suffering, too much pain. Then suddenly, the spirit will emerge through the lives of ordinary people who hear a call and answer in extraordinary ways - Mother Teresa

Struggle is proof that you haven't been conquered, that you refuse to surrender, that victory is still possible, and that you're growing - Jon Walden

Helping a Survivor through her Ordeal

Akayamma was attacked with acid in March 2014. We came in contact with her after a week through our volunteer. She comes from a very poor family and bearing the expense of treatment was not possible for her family. Since then we are trying to help her with all her surgeries and she has recovered remarkably. She was first treated in Victoria Hospital and later at St. Johns Medical College Hospital, Bangalore.
She underwent several reconstructive surgeries and was admitted to St. Johns Hospital for past two weeks. She got discharged from hospital on 6th Dec 2014. She is much better now but will require many more surgeries going forward. She is now looking at the next step and will be soon working with our social enterprise for supporting her livelihood.
Here are some pictures of her during last 6 months. Long way to go ....!

The picture above was taken just after the attack.

After two months of the attack. This is without any reconstructive surgeries.

Atijeevan Empowers Kavita to Earn a Livelihood of Dignity

We are very proud to share that a Kavita, an acid attack ambassador with us is now earning her livelihood with dignity. She has learned to make paper jewelry through the training material we provided her. We also provided the raw materials for the same to get started. For last 6 months she has mastered the art and has exhibited her product all by herself in several Festivals/Fares in Lucknow and Delhi. She is a role model for her fellow survivors and her hard work proves that earning a livelihood with dignity in spite of being an Acid Survivor is possible.
