JOY Personal Care Empowers Acid Attack Survivors with #JustEmpowerOne Initiative


Mumbai, 10 January, 2023: Joy Personal Care, a homegrown, Indian Personal Care brand under the aegis of RSH Global Private Limited, announced the launch of ‘#JustEmpowerOne’, initiative, that will raise funds to positively impact the economic condition of acid attack survivors. Conceptualized with empathy at its core, the initiative aims to bring forth the challenges of woman acid attack survivors to the world. With this initiative, the brand will donate Rupee 1 for each support showcase on the microsite.

Acid attacks are all time high in India and are rising year after year, with 250–300 cases reported each year, whereas the actual number could exceed 1,000, according to Acid Survivor’s Trust International. An acid attack survivor, post the incident faces physical, psychological, social and economic adversities. Hence, as a first step towards solidarity, Joy hired Pampa Das, an acid attack survivor as an executive for its ecommerce department. The purpose of this initiative is to support women in need and inspire other organizations to come on board.

Audiences can contribute to the cause simply by clicking on a support button on a microsite created for the campaign. With this initiative, the brand will ensure Rupee 1 is donated for every click. For this, the company partnered with ‘Atijeevan Foundation’ to interact with and understand the needs of acid attack victims and significantly impact their lives.
