Swimming Elephanta to Gateway to help Acid Attack Survivors


I'm a long distance swimmer and I am taking my first step in channel swimming by swimming a small channel. I will be swimming from Elephanta Island to Gateway of India. The channel is approximately 12km wide and I will be covering the distance by swimming freestyle starting at 7:30 am IST on 22nd January. Though this event, I want to raise money for MakeLuvNotScars an NGO working to help acid attack victims. 

Acid Attack is one of the most horrible crimes out there and women are the predominant victims. Most victims are disfigured permanently and even loose their eyesight after the attack. They are too traumatized to continue with their lives and it's hard for them to recover from such an experience. They rarely get justice due to faulty justice and it's hard for them to lead normal lives even after they heal because society won't accept them easily. We cannot change the past or grant them justice but we can do our bit to make them smile.

Team MakeLuvNotScars is working on a rehabilitation center to help the victims heal and move on with their lives. Let's do our bit to help them and make this world a better place. Please contribute to this campaign, any small amount will do :)

Dear Supporters, 

Make Love Not Scars (MLNS) has rehabilitated numerous acid attack survivors, thanks to your support. 

They regularly conduct awareness campaigns on the realities of acid attacks. They are continuously working towards getting the unmonitored sale of acid banned in the market. 

Their efforts have not gone unnoticed. MLNS has witnessed an increase in awareness and support for acid attack survivors. 

Members of the organisation educate the survivors and teach them lessons in English three times a week. They are also taught to design jewellery. Dance classes are regularly conducted. These attempts are aimed at helping survivors develop skills to secure employment and other opportunities. 

The girls at this centre have been greatly encouraged by Reshma Qureshi’s recent spectacle at the New York Fashion Week early this year.

MLNS is working on associating with similar events and organisations that’ll help raise awareness and provide opportunities to its survivors to build confidence. 

They thank you tremendously for your support.


Team Milaap.
