Babs - My Story

My name is Babs and I am currently studying adult nursing at Liverpool John Moore's University. I am a survivor of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), and I want to use my experience as a survivor of FGM to tackle FGM and other harmful traditional practices. I joined hands with Savera UK to engage with professionals and communities to raise awareness and inform them of the impact these issues can have on their health and wellbeing. Also to help make a difference as well as make an end to FGM and other harmful practices within communities. I believe that by educating the community to understand FGM and other harmful practices, we can make a change and hopefully one day to eradicate all harmful practices.
