Crowdera launches Support Orange Café campaign to help acid attack survivors

New Delhi, Nov 24 (UNI) Crowdera, a free fundraising and crowdfunding platform for individuals and organisations, is helping acid attack survivors to find a firm footing and reclaim their place back in the society. The campaign - Support Orange Café who is against patriarchal violence is currently active on Crowdera’s crowdfunding platform.
A group of acid attack survivors from Uttar Pradesh had started ‘The Orange Café and Restaurant: Standing for a violence-free world’ in Varanasi just before the coronavirus pandemic struck. Initially helped by the collaborative effort of Action Aid Association, the café is owned and operated by the survivors. The café continued to operate during the lockdowns and served more than 200 meals a day to the most pandemic-affected sections of society, the fundraising platform said in a statement issued here on Tuesday.
"We have faced many difficulties and hardships in our life after suffering acid attack. Today, I am happy and satisfied to be able to do something for the even more vulnerable sections of the society in this hour of need," says Badama Devi, one of the brave survivors, on serving meals during lockdowns.
