Pamela had an excruciating birth because of FGM, and is now scared to become pregnant again. Salome was so terrified of being cut she walked over 200km to escape. In this blog post, we share the stories that lie behind the FGM statistics.
140 million women and girls have been cut worldwide, but it's the experience of women like Pamela, Chepatula, Everlyne and Salome from Kenya that bring the horror of that statistic to life.

We stand with the fearless women who've been working to end violence for decades. Do you? Spread the word: 
One in three women will face violence in their lifetimes. But all over the world, incredible women are standing up and speaking out. It's time to stand with them. Together, we're fearless.

Growing up in Afghanistan is dangerous for children. By sponsoring a child like 3-year-old Amirullah you could help keep him safe and give him a better future. http://po.st/TBI8lQ

Damaris is an FGM survivor. Joining an ActionAid group in Kenya has made a huge difference to Damaris’ life - she now feels safe, supported and is learning practical skills to help her in the future. Please help us reach more girls like Damaris:
Millions of girls are at risk of FGM. Please help us reach them before they're cut.

Damaris was 11 when she was cut. She didn't know what female genital mutilation was until she heard the screams of her friends having it done before her.
Today, we're launching an appeal to protect the millions of girls around the world at risk from FGM. Please donate:
