The Story

Dear friends,

My name is Masha Zhigunova and I work at Vejthani hospital in Bangkok.

I'm raising funds to help a young mum who has been victim of a shocking act of cruelty from her husband !

Atsede Nigussie was so healthy before this bad incident happened.
She is only 26 years old, mother of a 5 years old boy and married to her husband for over 5 years.
She used to live together with her family in Ethiopia where her husband used to attack her violently, both physically and emotionally.
Then he decided to go to Yemen to work illegally and stayed there for four months.
Meanwhile, all of the house responsibilities were left to Atsede. She had to support her kid and her HIV positive mother by her own.
One day, some of her neighbors told her that her husband was back from Yemen but he never contacted her nor visiting them at home.
A night, it was around 11 pm when she was on her way back home.
After entering her home, she tried to close the door but noticed that somebody was trying to open it back. When she opened the door again, she found her husband standing there which one immediately spilled some acid all over her face and body. Shocked, she screamed and shouted for help and ran away.

As you can see on the pictures, her whole face including her eyes, both legs and hands are severely burned. Now, she cannot see at all because of the damaged acid has caused. She also cannot open her mouth to eat and drink due to skin contracture.

After the accident, her family took her to the hospital at ER Department in Ethiopia and they attended the immediate medical care.
Then, the medical team recommended her to get treated abroad for tertiary and thorough medical care and treatment.
Right now, she is here at Vejthani Hospital in Thailand to get the only treatment she can get as they cannot treat her in her country.

I am pleading everyone to support her as her son and her helpless mother need her back home safe and healthy !

Thank you in advance.

Dear Atsede,
I have read what your husband has done to you and I am bewildered and very sad. I'm so sorry about what happened. Nobody can imagine what you have to do physically and emotionally. I wonder if your family is with you and hope you are told that people around the world are thinking about you and feeling with you. I wish you to stay strong - for you and your son. Show this man that he does not get you small, even though it is certainly hard for you to think positively about the future.
I live in Germany send you a lot of strength and am thinking about you.
Please do not give up!
Your Christina
