LAN_PRINT_135 Clitoraid Deplores the Death of Kenyan Teenager FGM Victim and Urges Kenyan Health Ministry to Open Clitoral Restoration Hospital
24 4月 2014
Las Vegas, - April 21, 2014. Following the tragic death of a thirteen-year old Kenyan girl after undergoing female genital mutilation (FGM) last Monday, Clitoraid urges Mr. James Macharia Kenya's Cabinet Secretary for Health to open Kenya's first Clitoral Repair Hospital.
"FGM reversal surgery will be a powerful deterrent to this barbaric and dangerous practice" says Nadine Gary, Communications Director for Clitoraid. "Why do something that can easily be undone?". See pictures of before and after surgical results courtesy of Clitoraid volunteer head surgeon, Dr. Bowers:
Clitoraid who is in the final stages of opening a Clitoral repair state-of-the-art clinic in Burkina Faso, organized a humanitarian mission in Bobo Dioulasso last month where 38 FGM patients recovered their clitoris thanks to the volunteer work of 4 US doctors who traveled to the West African country to offer the surgery.
"The same humanitarian mission must be organized in Kenya in the shortest delay" insists Gary. "Countless FGM victims from Kenya have been writing to us begging us to provide the service in Kenya and to give them back a sense of dignity and pleasure".
A letter has been addressed to Mr. James Macharia where Clitoraid offers to come and train a Kenyan surgeon free of charge willing to learn the surgical technique.
"No time can be wasted, we must act at once and save lives!" concluded Gary.
