ASFU is an indigenous Non-Governmental Organization that was started in 2003 when the evil of acid violence was acknowledged. It is the only organization in Uganda that holistically addresses the challenges that survivors of acid attacks face. ASFU annually registers up to 35 victims of acid violence. With 425 victims registered, it is important to note that some cases of acid violence go un reported especially when the violence is amongst family members.
ASFU is responsible for identifying ways of stopping acid violence. The organization networks with other organizations relevant in preventing the spread of acid violence through advocacy and the implementation of a wide variety of public education programs. The Foundation also continues to play an important role to make acid violence a matter of urgent public concern.
