WARNING: Some viewers may find Helen's story distressing.
Helen was attacked by a stranger who bit her bottom lip off. She literally fought for her life.
After being disfigured she went to the Papua New Guinean media to tell her story in the hope of getting justice and an end to violence against women in her country. She is an inspiring mother, woman and leader who is fighting for women's rights in PNG.
