What's this?The list of who you connected to, and who connected with you, is normally public. This can help you and others find like minded or interesting people to connect with. But if necessary you can hide this connection, and it will not be visible to anyone, not even the person you are connecting to.



Scary but hope for even this is not unfounded. They should continue to go from healing to healing and strength to stremtgh.

• Develop a shelter for acid attack victims as a halfway house for rehabilitation

• Create an educational fund to provide training and rehabilitation for marketable skills

• Develop a small loan fund for acid attack and burn victims of gender violence to help develop businesses both rural and urban

• Make available basic healing and health supplies for acid attack victims while hospitalized and for after care

• Provide support for transportation to and from the hospital for those providing support and counseling to hospitalized victims

Hanifa speaking to CERESAV members.JPG

After suffering a brutal acid attack in 2011 at her estranged husband’s home in Makerere University-Kampala, the founder of CERESAV (Centre for Rehabilitation of Survivors of Acid and burns Violence); Hanifa Nakiryowa, a graduate with a master’s degree in Economics and a mother of two bravely decided to become an outspoken advocate to raise public awareness and to speak out against this type of violence.

Hanifa strongly believes that her physical scarring has not at all affected her true personality. She believes she is still the same person inside with similar ability to do things and to cause change like any other normal person. She has demonstrated her commitment and dedication through providing emotional support to the victims of acid violence, increasing awareness raising, lobbying for collective efforts to fight this barbaric act through the media both nationally and internationally.
