Without sponsors or a funded budget for it, we held this emergency conference due to lack of government protection to girls at risk of genital mutilation and the recent efforts to legalize FGM in Egypt. Help us pay for the costs of this conference to eradicate female genital mutilation. At this conference the voice of the voiceless women and girls subjected to female genital mutilation around the world was heard, and the heroes fighting FGM in Africa and around the world discussed the current status of FGM and united in eradication and victim assistance efforts.
The conference was FREE to the public and we need your help to cover the costs so we can continue to provide platforms for awareness and eradication even on emergency basis!
Location was: New York Academy of Medicine Conference Center 1216 Fifth Avenue at 103rd Street, New York, NY 10029
