Nayee Zindagi Program
Social protection policies and programs have long been recognized for their significance in addressing ongoing poverty issues. The core objective of social protection is to bolster the resilience of underprivileged individuals and enable them to better manage economic and social risks.
In alignment with this vision, the Punjab Social Protection Authority, as part of the ‘Punjab Ehsaas Program,’ proudly presents the ‘Nayee Zindagi Program’ tailored specifically for Acid Attack Victims. This program is geared towards the comprehensive rehabilitation of Acid Attack survivors, encompassing reconstructive surgeries and psychological counseling to facilitate their reintegration into society. In close partnership with the Specialized Healthcare & Medical Education Department, PSPA shoulders the treatment costs.
Access to a well-structured rehabilitation program can significantly mitigate the aftermath of trauma, enhance overall health and quality of life, and curtail the reliance on healthcare services. Therefore, our focus on the rehabilitation of Acid Attack Victims plays a pivotal role in empowering them to lead as independent and productive lives as possible within their homes and communities.
Empowering Acid Attack Victims through a systematic approach across various domains represents a crucial stride towards mainstreaming their socio-economic status. The ‘Nayee Zindagi Program’ has been thoughtfully crafted with the following key objectives in mind:
