reconstructing hope

I visited Agni Raksha, a Bangalore-based NGO which helps burns victims. Those who survive extensive burns remain scarred for life in both mind and spirit. The scar tissues can contort the body and hamper free movement.

Agni Raksha helps such burns victims, mainly from poor backgrounds, by offering assistance with reconstructive surgery and rehabilitation into mainstream society.
