It was none other than her stepmother who poured acid on Rupa while she slept in her native village in Uttar Pradesh.

It is difficult to imagine her pain when Rupa narrates how she suffered living with her stepmother after her mother's demise when she was a kid. She was physically and mentally abused and lived in constant fear. And then, one night, her stepmother poured acid on her and left her without any first aid for 6 hours until her uncle reached and took her to a nearby hospital. 

That was 6 years ago. 

Today, she works with Stop Acid Attacks' team to fight for justice for herself and other acid attack fighters. Along with fellow acid attack fighter, Laxmi, she helped organise acid attack fighters from all over India and mobilise a campaign which helped ban open sale of acid and bring the issue of Acid Attacks to the forefront in India. 

Even though the fight will continue for her, Rupa now wants to make her childhood dream come true. She always loved stitching clothes and wanted to be a designer. She wants to set up her own boutique now and work towards becoming financially independent. 

Our Goal is to rent a shop for Rupa in a decent locality in Delhi which Rupa can decorate as her boutique. We want to also provide her with the initial capital for her shop so that she can buy the equipment and employ other acid attack survivors to work with her. 

Acid attacks are a by-product of a certain societal mindset and together we can eliminate this social evil from it's roots. Let's come together to make sure that this heinous crime does not become a hindrance in someone's life. 

Help Rupa's dream become a reality.

Stop Acid Attacks is a campaign initiated by journalist and activist Alok Dixit, who after covering the brutal crime of acid attacks extensively across the country, has brought together acid attack fighters, journalists and other eminent people form the civil society to fight against the ghastly act. We intend to provide immediate help to survivors of acid attacks, as most of these lose their organs and faces, and consecutively their zeal to live, by the time justice is served through courts.
