ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has announced conferring a high Civil Award on Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy on winning an Oscar Award for her documentary film 'Saving Face'.
‘Saving Face’ chronicles the work of British Pakistani plastic surgeon Mohammad Jawad, who performed reconstructive surgery on survivors of acid attacks in Pakistan.
More than 100 people, mainly women and girls, are disfigured in acid attacks every year in Pakistan, although groups helping survivors say many more cases go unreported.
