Untainted Love

The picture shows the bond between a mother and daughter, both of whom had been attacked by acid. The culprit was her own husband who poured acid own his own wife and girl child. It was a moment's act, however the effects have lasted ever since. This tragic incident has not only disfigured them, but has also caused some serious internal injuries, leaving the daughter sightless.
