FGM is not female circumcision!
It is a brutal practice on babies and young girls without consent that results in lifelong unbearable pain..........it is totally unnecessary and has no medical benefits.
I have always been aware of FGM, this extreme practice in which very young girls are subjected to within certain cultures around the world. However, I was unaware of the extent of the harm and cruelty of this practice until Tara bought it to my attention. It is a cause that Tara and I feel very strongly about and we thought it was a good idea to raise money for this charity through donations from my guests rather than buy birthday gifts for me.
Therefore, if you were kindly planning on buying me a birthday gift, I would appreciate it very much if you could instead make a donation to this charity. Looking forward to seeing you all then. xx
