Anti-FGM campaigner Leyla Hussein works for Manor Gardens to promote awareness of this illegal practice and the after-effects which cause women so much pain and suffering. She set up the Dahlia Project which brings together women survivors and offers therapeutic help, often for the first time, and a safe space to discuss the physical and mental issues associated with FGM.
We've set up an appeal to raise money to keep this work going after our Comic Relief funding ends. Please give generously so that we can support more of the 137,000 women in England and Wales who have undergone FGM.
There is an excellent article in Sisterhood digital magazine on how FGM affects women and the impact the Dahlia Project has had on them.
