Acid attacks in Columbia - level 1
Something very bad happens to a woman. It is in Columbia. It is in March 2014. Someone throws acid in her face. The acid burns her. Her face is different. Her body is different. She says that it is like she has no identity. She is very sad.
Now she wants to help other people. They are also victims of acid attacks. She wants to make an organisation to help them. She wants people who make these attacks to go to jail longer. She wants it to be harder to buy acid.
Difficult words: acid (a liquid that can burn things), identity (who you are as a person), victim (a person who has something bad happen to him or her).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
