SPONSOR Angela Peabody
I do this work against FGM because it is not about me; it is about the innocent girls and the women still suffering from PTSD in post-FGM life. I am participating in the Walk to show full storyEnd Female Genital Mutilation. Money raised from this event will be used to help Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation open a special center for women, girls, parents and the community. Female genital mutilation is the intentional removal of the female genitalia for non-medical reasons. Many girls die daily as a result of FGM. 85% of maternal and infant mortality in Africa is the result of FGM. Now, FGM is being practiced here on American soil in many states. We want it stopped in the world, and most importantly in the United States. Please help by sponsoring me.
Our goal this year is to raise at least $20,000. When you sponsor this year's event your sponsorship dollars or product will help us acquire a special center where women and girls can receive counseling, referral for restorative surgery, support group workshops, training and survivor resettlement assistance. Thank you!
