Speaking at the event, Ms. Rima Pradhan, Sr. Vice President, Marketing at Viviana Mall says, “Every year we, at ExtraordiNAARI try and create awareness towards a specific aspect that touches lives of women to create pathways that can lead to success. This year we were spell bounded with the kind of courage and fighting spirit that these acid attack survivors from different parts of our nation have shown. We in our way were happy to host them at Viviana Mall and give them some moments to cherish. We are also trying to create some career opportunities for these acid attack survivors to keep their hopes alive. With more than 350 registered acid attack survivors in India, it’s high time we take steps to support them and take measures to stop such attacks.”
