Fighting to end FGM
Hoda Ali considers herself lucky to be alive. She underwent female genital mutilation (FGM) when she was only seven years and as a result has suffered many medical emergencies, surgical interventions and, time and time again, has heard life changing news from expert doctors about the affect that FGM has had on her. Yet Hoda refuses to be a victim and she is now a qualified sexual health nurse, educator and community campaigner against the harmful practice of FGM.
In this short film Hoda talks about her experience and why she is committed to ending FGM and ensuring that the next generation of girls lives free from its threat.
