Assistance for Acid Burn Victim, Faith

Assistance for Acid Burn Victim, Faith

Personal message

The story of Faith is a heart breaking one, to say the least. Her and a friend, Emelda, were walking together in the centre of town last month, on their way to the taxi rank to get home. They were both approached by two men – who neither of them had seen before – and were attacked. The men were carrying acid and doused both women in the liquid. Emelda was lucky enough to get away with burns on one hand but poor Faith took the brunt of the attack, as you can see from the picture.

Faith is a single mom to a little boy – age 7 – and has been left with severe burns on her face, eyes, chest, arms and hands. Her little boy cannot even look at her anymore…

Faith used to work as a beauty therapist but because of the severe burns, cannot return to work. Treatment – which is now happening through Bara Burns Unit – will be a long, excruciating process, leaving her without work.

Faith is in desperate need of help, while she heals, and before she can rejoin the workforce to fend for her and her little boy.

 We are in need of the below:

  • Funds to support Faith as she recovers. She has a little boy to feed, clothe, school and keep sheltered. She has no income and no support system to help her.
  • A counsellor for her and her little boy. He cannot face his mom as the scaring and burns are extremely traumatising for him. They both need love and support in this very hard time.

 Please get in touch if you can assist with counselling and donate here if you can assist to help Faith rebuild her life. Let's show her that there isn't only cruelty in the world.
