ActionAid supporter takes on RideLondon 2019

RideLondon

Cycle traffic-free roads through some of the most famous streets of London.

Why cycle for ActionAid?

At age 15, Nahar (pictured right) was brutally attacked with acid when she turned down a boy who wanted a relationship with her. She spent eight months in hospital recovering and will live with her scars and trauma for life.

Working with ActionAid, Nahar founded the Acid Survivors' Network, which provides essential support and rehabilitation for acid attack survivors in Bangladesh.

Nahar said: "We want to see all survivors with jobs in the future, earning money for themselves. We also want to make sure that survivors get proper justice. I hope the survivors can move easily through Bangladesh and that society will accept them as normal people - not just acid victims. I also want to see survivors in government positions; I want to see them in Parliament. That is my dream."

By joining ActionAid's RideLondon team, you can support women and girls around the world continue to change and challenge the systems and beliefs that make violence acceptable.
