The village’s surgeon

She is 75, and has been doing this for 30 years.

She has cut clitorises and labia of countless girls. The procedure is barbaric and unsafe. Every December, girls ready to marry are gathered and line up outside her hut. One by one, they lay on a cow skin, and are mutilated with a razor blade. In between each cut, she splashes a goat milk and herbs concoction on their genitals. They bleed for 6 hours. Some escape before, some die during the process. GlobalRoots.org is raising funds to help rescue the girls who escape, educate the parents and tribal chiefs.
