THIS NUMBER SHOCKS !
8,000 girls are genitally mutilated every day. This crime against little innocent girls does not only happen in Africa, Asia or the Middle East. No. Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is also practised secretly in our midst in Europe, Great Britain, Canada and the USA.
8,000 girls per day ! The number of unknown cases is probably even higher.
Female genital mutilation has nothing to do with religion, culture or tradition. It is about oppression and the exercise of power over girls and women. It is about controlling female sexuality. It is a horrific practice that has really lost nothing in the 21st century. FGM also has no medical background. It is one of the most brutal forms of child abuse and against every human right.
8,000 girls a day !
The safest way to protect a girl from FGM is to become a Desert Flower sponsor. For 30 euros a month, your sponsored girl is protected from FGM and forced marriage, gets a school education and one hot meal a day as well as medical care.
Together we can eradicate female genital mutilation once and for all !
Here you can directly sign up for a Desert Flower sponsorship.
ALL THE BEST AND MANY THANKS FOR YOUR HELP !
