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.
