Azra, 30, who was burned with acid by her brother-in-law, is seen eating lunch by herself in her room, Lahore, Pakistan, May 2, 2003. She refuses to eat with the other residents because she is embarrassed of her looks and now cries every time she has to show her face. Azra now lives at Dastak, a shelter opened in 1990 for abused women seeking refuge by the AGHA Legal Aid Cell. Authorities at the shelter say they have arranged medical care and treatment for her burns and scarring.
