Acid attacks are one of the most mentally and physically traumatizing acts of violence imaginable. In an instant, the victim is damaged for life - painfully scarred and horribly disfigured. We work to reverse the damage caused by these attacks by restoring hope to survivors.Learn More
Founded in 2006, the Cambodian Acid Survivors Charity is a non-profit based in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, that works with survivors of acid attacks using a holistic approach - addressing both the physical and mental damage inflicted upon survivors of acid attacks.
CASC provides medical treatment, rehabilitation, support and skills training for acid burn survivors. We promote education and awareness in the safe handling and storage of acid, and work to eradicate acid violence by encouraging strict regulatory action at the national level.
Often, acid attack survivors are shunned by society, left without access to important medical care and unable to provide for their families. CASC addresses an important need by helping these victims heal, find work, and restore the potential that was taken away during the attack.
Babs (bags by acid burn survivors) are high-quality crocheted accessories made by female survivors of acid burns. The bags offer survivors a path to reintegration and a sustainable income. CASC teaches survivors the skills needed to create the bags and helps to sell them on their behalf. Learn More
