Victims of Female Genital Mutilation
The practice of female genital mutilation (FGM) also known as “Female Circumcision” is performed in certain parts of the world on girls and women. It generally consists in cutting the female genitalia for non-medical necessity. The practice is solely rooted in traditional reasons. The consequences of FGM on the health and psychological well-being of girls and women are tragic and can sometimes lead to death.
