Programs

This summer, CAGeM will be embarking on a vital new project in West Africa to contribute to the elimination of Female Genital mutilation (FGM), protect victims of FGM and aid in victims' rehabilitation. One of the most crucial aspects of this project is the expansion of a hospital that will provide free support, counseling, treatment and rehabilitation for girls that are suffering through the many harmful and painful effects of FGM including obstetric fistula. The hospital already has hundreds of women and girls on the waiting list to undergo clitoral reconstruction surgery. The funds that we will procure from this cause will go towards obtaining and shipping the medical supplies that are needed to successfully treat these patients.
