I want to thank CAGeM for the clitoral reconstruction surgery. I was circumcised at 9 years old. Thank you very much for helping me.

I ran away from home when I was 11 after my older sister died from circumcision. I wandered with no food or shelter until I was rescued by CAGeM and taken to the safe house. I was given my basic needs and education until my village abandonned circumcision due to the work of CAGeM. That was over 10 years ago. I am now in University and engaged to a man who cares for me. If I was not rescued I would have been forced back home and married off at 13 like my sister. I know what my life would have been like if I was not rescued. The best way I can say thanks is by helping other girls that need help which I have been doing and will continue to do.
