On this significant day, we join hands to raise awareness about the pressing issue of female genital mutilation (FGM) and stand in solidarity with those affected. World Female Mutilation Day aims to shed light on the physical, emotional, and psychological consequences of this harmful practice, as well as to promote efforts to eradicate it globally.
