How many more people have to be attacked for the Acid Attack Violence Control Law to come into existence? Who should be the next victim for the Government of Uganda to pay attention to our outcry?
My name is Hanifa Nakiryowa, the founder of the Center for Rehabilitation of Survivors of Acid and burns Violence (CERESAV). I suffered this horrendous act of human terrorism in 2011, 3 months after quitting an abusive marriage. It is now six years since that Acid Attack that changed my entire life, dreams, and hopes. It has been six years of crying out for an end to this inhumane form of violence. Acid Attack Violence is a form of Gender Based Violence that disproportionately affects women like me and children like my seven-year-old daughter, who sustained burns, and my 10-year-old daughter, who witnessed it all as it happened. It has been six years and it still happens today as it did six years ago.
Seeing another human being victimized by the same Acid Attack Violence brings me the worst memories. It traumatizes my children who witnessed my own attack and live with it every day of their lives and will live with it for the rest of their lives. They put up with the bullies trying to defend my identity everywhere they go. My children need a chance to be children. All children need a chance to be young and only young. They don't deserve to go through this form of invisible victimization.
It is time for us to embark on a rigorous advocacy campaign in Uganda to have the Acid attack Violence Control Bill passed so we can have no more Victims. Together we can save the next victim. Let us together spread this awareness.
Please, Help us share this sensitization video on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest, Instagram until we attract the attention required to bring the change.
We have accomplished a lot together. We have shown love together. We have shared great ideas together. Up to this point, we are still standing together.
You have demonstrated a priceless sense of humanity by continuing to stand with us.
NOW IS THE TIME TO STAND TOGETHER EVEN STRONGER to call on the 10th PARLIAMENT OF UGANDA to take action.
We have done our part.
Let us pressure them to do their part too!
TOGETHER WE SIGNED THE TOXIC CHEMICALS PROHIBITION AND CONTROL BILL PETITION TO VICTORY.
TOGETHER WE CAN SPREAD THE AWARENESS AND GET THIS PETITION SIGNED TO VICTORY.
