FGM/C reversal

Twenty-three-year-old Adjura had a reversal operation in 2009.


“I felt very low,” says Adjura. “Sex was very difficult and I knew I was different from my friends. I didn’t think I’d be able to have a baby.”


But soon after the operation Adjura conceived her daughter. “My life has changed deeply since the operation. Thank god I have my baby girl now.”


The UK is working to reduce the practice of FGM/C by 30% in at least 10 countries in Africa in the next 5 years. Find out more about our work:


Take a stand. Pledge to end FGM, child marriage and forced marriage now:
