Meet the Artisan

Ya’s Story of Hope “One day someone flung a container of acid on my face. It burned my face and ran down my body. The excruciating extensive burns threatened to take my life for months, and since then I’ve had to endure numerous surgeries to attempt to re-make my features and face to be normal again. I now have to live with the scarring of my face and body, and also with the scarring on my heart. I’ve been the subject of mockery, hatred, rejection and curiosity, but rarely the subject of compassion or help. I’m gradually trying to rebuild my life and to make a future for myself, but the only thing that gives me the courage to do that is that I know that I’m not alone, and that I may be able to do something to help others. I started this business to make goods by hand so that other women in my condition can earn their own living in safety and some measure of self-respect.”

The Impact of Your Purchase

Artisans are overcoming the trauma and stigma of acid attacks in Cambodia. These women have had acid thrown on them as a form of punishment or revenge. Traditionally, acid attack survivors in Cambodia are considered outcasts and are often victims of cultural discrimination and random violence. As Artisans, these women who were once shamed, abused, neglected, and abandoned are now rising out of poverty to become independent businesswomen. Purchase this bracelet and empower a woman in Cambodia!
