“Strength and support are the tools that helped me go from being a victim of an acid attack to a survivor. These are the gifts I received from my family, especially my father. Though he is gone today, I think there is still a lot more he wanted to do to help others in need, as he was always ready to come to the aid of those who wanted help while he was still alive. I want to share and spread his message and legacy with this Foundation, started in his name and help others in their journeys, to go from being helpless to becoming strong enough to thrive and help others.”
