The second phase of surgery for Madam Henrietta Amoah, who was doused with acid by her boyfriend, has been successful in New Delhi, India.
This follows the first phase of surgery which was also successful and according to the doctors, was difficult and sensitive. The first phase was to enable her open and close her eyes and to make her see properly as the acid attack rendered her almost blind.
The victim and her mother who left the country on Friday 3rd March, are now waiting for two more surgeries which are expected to correct the defects she suffered as a result of the acid attack.
Henrietta suffered this ordeal when her boyfriend who claimed she was cheating on him, doused her with acid while she was taking her bath at Osu where she resides. Her whole face and head were gravely burnt and deformed.
