UK doctors cure acid attack victims on holidays

A team of British and Danish scientists have made a way to make holidays more productive .
The team travel around the world on holidays offering plastic surgery to people who have been disfigured by acid attacks .
The team, part of British charity Interplast UK, includes surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses, a physiotherapist – even a pharmacist . The dream team pay for their own flight and for accommodations as well. They have recently travelled Delhi to help other victims . As of now they have performed over a 100 surgical procedures in the short span of two weeks .
Quoting the BBC “They see lots of children with cleft palates and the victims of burns and other accidental injuries, but about a quarter of their patients are people who have been deliberately disfigured: doused in acid in horrific attacks.”
These attacks causes complete destruction of the person’s  life.
Government figures suggest there are perhaps 1,000 such attacks a year; campaigners say that is a grotesque underestimate. They say the real figure is many, many times higher.
Retired NHS plastic surgeon Charles Viva says that stories of their survival from these acid attacks has been a source of inspiration for them.
One of the stories is of Anupama.

Anupama had travelled from Bihar to Delhi to have this operation . She was 14 when she was attacked . She and her sister had been frequently assaulted. The two sons and a daughter had started eve teasing her and trying to lure her into their house. When her father complained, they became angry. A few nights later, they came to the family house and threw acid on Anupama and her sister while they were sleeping. Her sister escaped with minor injuries , however Anupama was not so fortunate .

Anupama has tried to have numerous operations all of them providing only basic treatment .
The sum that doctors demanded for a more intensive treatment was way beyond what Anupama could afford .This team of doctors has transformed Anupama’s life .

This story  will hopefully inspire people to help change the future of a person’s life even while on a holiday .
