Acid attacks are a debilitating and cowardly way to show authority and power and, unfortunately, not uncommon in India.
Ria Sharma(@ria13sharma), a then fashion student, sought to make a difference in the lives of acid attack survivors after a college assignment exposed her to the plight of these survivors.
Sharma founded the organization, Make Love Not Scars in an effort to empower and support acid attack survivors.
The organization has since launched campaigns like #EndAcidSale, to prevent the sale of life threatening and corrosive acid to the common public and #SkillsnotScars, which aims to provide jobs to victims and survivors.
