The Main Aim of Deborah Alessi- To Help the Needy Individual and Bring the Lost Smile Back

Domestic violence is a devastating practice that lurks at every corner of the population. It can lead to bring on risks into any individual’s life; a risk of disregard, a risk of abuse, a risk of losing affection. Any sort of violence may lead to negative outcomes which adversely affects in the adjustment process and the victim may likely start to develop maladaptive behaviour. According to W.H.O, the negative effects to children of living in a violent household are similar across culturally and geographically diverse settings. Besides, it also affects normal development of a person. Domestic violence can also be in the form of honour killing, acid attack, verbal, marital rape, sexual, dowry violence.

Thus, it is important to respond to these issues in a right way. It requires a serious societal concern of each and every person. It is to be noted that a vast majority of the population got injuries in domestic violence. It is worthy to mention the name of Deborah Alessi, who founded Face forward service- a facial surgical reconstructive service which provide support to all victimised people. It is an effort of Face forward to work for those who have physical evidence of past abuse.

The mission taken up by Face forward is to provide physical and emotional reconstruction for women, men and children who were victims of any domestic, gang related or other kind of violence. It aims to offer each of such victims to provide the best possible physical and mental treatment in a prompt manner.

In order to achieve its goals, the experts works closely with other community leaders across the nation, mainly to identify the victims of violence; who in turn are now trying to move forward in the path of recovery. The concept is to provide healing effort and support to individuals with the underlying confidence to once again put their best face forward.

Since it is a Non-profit organization, it directs more than 90% of its received donations towards victim treatment and recovery process. It has been noticed that the treatment cost of an average victim lies around 5000$, hence every penny donated by you for the cause has its own significance.

The fact still remains that one out of three women on average on a global scale are physically abused. More than 50% of murders and disfiguring assaults in metro cities are due to gang-related issues. There are hardly any free treatment options for these innocent victims. Hence, Face forward feels that there is a responsibility in everyone of us to give the best we can!
